My life was too dark
Darker than a night sky
Without a moon to light up my path.
I’ve lived in a place where
The sun never shines,
The moon never glows,
And the stars were nonexistent.
Only a big black hole
That seeps out my soul.
I liked the night skies before
But not mine.
Mine was a night sky of pain, only pain.
When i was young
I owned a telescope,
I used to sneak out to the backyard at night
And stare up at the sky,
Gazing at the clusters of stars,
Marveling the silvery shine of the moon when full.
I was always fascinated with the night sky,
Hoping to dream of shooting stars while asleep.
But they weren’t dreams,
They were nightmares.
Now I don’t fancy the night sky anymore
Not when my life became that dark
The difference is, the night sky had few clusters of stars
Lighting it up, prettifying it.
Had a moon to shine up the dark paths.
But not my sky,
Not my life,
My life had no clusters of happiness.
No moon of joy.
Just a draped dark sky of pain.
