It was dark, so black my eyes went dim.
All the luster, all the light went out to fill the stars.
It was night-eternal night, and I surrendered.
I succumbed to the seduction of peace.
The noise cut out. My heart stopped its beat, and my soul leapt up, finally free.
I am among the stars; there I sleep in peace eternally.
Its light, so bright my eyes can see.
The weight of the world was too much for me.
You loved me so much, so deeply, so true- but love was not enough to silence the demons in my room.
Do not weep. Do not let your light go dim. Look up to where the stars are hid, I am there whispering back, “tomorrow always brings the sun.”
