Ode to a Fallen Star

A fallen star, your love once blazed so bright,

Guiding me through darkness, filling my world with light.

But the heavens shifted, fate's cruel hand intervened,

Leaving me lost in shadows, a love unseen.

My heart, a fragile blossom, withers in the cold,

Echoes of laughter, stories left untold.

Each empty promise, a thorn lodged deep within,

A constant reminder of the light that could have been.

Will dawn ever chase away this endless night?

Can my wounded heart learn to heal beneath its light?

Or will I forever wander, searching for your glow,

A fallen star's memory, haunting the depths below?

If you enjoyed it, please like and follow for more!
