The Lies of the Nighttime Sky

When the sun waves goodbye

And the moon emerges,

I cannot help but gaze

At the mysterious night sky.

With its thousands of twinkling little stars,

Spatter painted against the charcoal-colored canvas.

I cannot help but reminisce

About the times I spent with you.

We would always lie down on the grass

Its viridescent blades tickling our skin,

Our hands interlocked for what we thought would be forever,

Counting all the shining lights.

Each and every night we would do this,

Connecting the dots of the past with the stars,

Attempting to create a future

One that would always involve you and me,

Forever.

 

However, those nights did not seem to last.

We were hypnotized

By the black hole of the sky

During those moments, we were timeless.

No one moved a muscle,

We did not even dare to breathe.

It was just you, I, and the sky.

But eventually, dawn would roll around

Breaking with pastel pinks

Bleeding into neon oranges,

Blending into a pure, innocent blue.

The moon would whisper

Its words inaudible,

And the blazing, fiery sun,

Would find its way back.

We were blinded

By its power.

In the darkness,

We failed to see

What was standing right in front of us

The entire time.

One day, these times would just be memories

Until they faded into nothingness.

I wish you told me

That one day you wouldn't be by my side

Ever again.

Leaving me in darkness

With the stars seemingly

Duller than ever before.

Mocking me, reminding me

Of the endless trail of lies, you told me.

Now, I sit alone,

The only other presence

The lies of the nighttime sky.
