Written in the Stars

Written in the Stars

If the stars
could speak
they would say
let the sun into
your black heart
So it may light
your way back
from darkness
Stop hiding in 
your cynicism
and fear
You were only safe
until the moon
ate the dark
Its silvery sheen
casts its light
on scars
of healed wounds
Fading in time
but no longer
infected by
your pain

    A wondrous phrase…. I agree with Sadje…
    “You were safe only till the moon ate the dark”
