Fallen Star

Fallen Star

Through my
thinly-veiled
fear
I watch as
my star fell
to the earth
and I saw
our love
lay dying
in the dirt
 
There it stood
in relief
proud of the soil
where you
would pick it up
and then
cast it aside
hurting me 
as only you could
 
You, my prince
who promised
me the world
Now destroying
my happiness
Banishing me
to the wilderness
as if I never existed
How little I knew
