Meteor


He made me feel
Like the sun
The center of his universe
That he revolved around
Until he didn’t

He made me feel
Like the moon
His calm light
In his world of darkness
Until he didn’t

He made me feel
Like the stars
Each part of me
A beautiful constellation
Highlighted against the dark night sky
Until he didn’t

The day that he came to the conclusion
My light was too bright
But at the same time
He was greedy for more of it
He yearned for the light
That he has lost from his own
He yearned for what wasn’t his to take

So
In the dark basement
Of his parents house
Where it smelled like sweat and cigarettes
On the couch
Who’s springs had given up long before
He took my light

In the house whose stairs
groaned
like a rusty gate
He stole everything I had to give
Swallowing me whole with the darkness
He was made of

I no longer felt like
The sun, moon, or the stars
I felt like a meteor
Just a brilliant flash of light
Until I was smashed into
A million pieces
My light faded to nothing
And I turned to dust
Swirling around in the darkness
Of space
Without meaning
Leaving me broken
Lost
In the dark
