step down and let their tears fall
they will water the garden
and feed the people
for you have deprived them of the feeling for so long.
I wish the sun would set again.
I haven't gotten a good rest in what feels like slow, burning decades.
All because the sun shines into my room
my mesh curtains won't block him out
so I lay dormant
and as I lie, I think
'did the sun ever love me?'
He was bright and stood taller than my short frame ever could.
He made me promise not to leave
but he danced with the moon at night.
I have tried everything to block the sun out,
but he refuses to set.
The trickles of light haunt my every move.
He marks where I'd fall down dead with my shadow.
He follows me even when I change in the bathroom.
I wish the sun would set again.
Simply so I can forget he ever existed.
I used to write poems for my ex, so have an updated one.
I hang dried flowers on the wall in my room.
I have nothing better to do.
I feel like a ghost as a walk to the wall.
I tape the flowers up with bits of my heart.
Together, my flowers and my heart wilt.
I hang dried flowers on the wall in my room.

The sun kisses our gentle foreheads.
She tells us it's ok.
She tells us it"s fine.
She raised us strong enough to get through this.
Listen to her.
She is waiting for you.

I was frozen despite the fire on my shoulder.
The ***** he drank stunk up the room
it was suffocating.
he strung his hand around my shoulder and gripped it tight.
His skin was dry.
He laughed and laughed and talked about how I looked just like my mum.
He said if I was older he wouldn't mind snatching me up and doing outrageous things to me.
He wouldn't stop laughing.

She's been waiting to hug the stars
She used to tell me how each star shined for me
and now she does the same.

We are in love.
and Earth stands between us like a priest.
and each eclipse,
I hold your cold hands
and smile.
It is a shame the humans can't see us,
for we shine so bright each night.
We are in love.
Each night, we dance the waltz
We spin and spin and spin
it is a shame the humans can't see it
for we dance so elegantly.
we are in LOVE.
not the best but i adore the idea of the moon and sun being partners.
