Moonless night

Moonless night

A night in which I saw no moon
but stood in the darkness

and gazed up at the black sky
seeded with a million stars

visible to the naked eye
some still in their infancy

others dying a lingering death
and I thought of all that distance

and all that light and all that silence
and all the love that we once shared

and all that warmth that so suddenly
turned to cold disdain when you left
