there was no moon out the night i met you
it was like it had been swallowed whole, hidden
underneath the night sky. and with it, everything
was swallowed in its darkness. no stars peeked out,
no streetlights flickered, there was nothing except
absolute oblivion. i was losing myself in that oblivion.
can i sit next to you?
it's lonely sitting by yourself.
but. then i saw you. and it was like the world lit up.
there were constellations in your eyes, supernovas
clinging to your cheeks. comets tangled up in the
strands of your hair. you were mesmerizing, as if
you were the one who had taken the night sky.
what's your name?
my name is selene.
i only saw you when the night sky was barren,
only saw your smile when everything around
was enshrouded in pitch black. but you were
always shining, always bright when everything
was dark. it was as if you came in my darkest times.
i'll come visit you.
so you won't be lonely anymore.
and i should've realized it then.
the reason why the moon and stars were swallowed
into oblivion the nights i saw you. the reason why
shooting stars shot across your irises. the reason why
it seemed like you stole the briliance of the night. i should've
realized that you and i were destined to be starcrossed.
do you know what that constellation is called?
it's called lyra.
only i realized it too late, and you were gone by then.
we were never meant to be. and i am left grasping for you
in my oblivion.
my name is sol.
