~Suddenly Shaded~

~Suddenly Shaded~

A Poem by AprilRN1210






“We are all of us stars, and we deserve to twinkle.”


-Marilyn Monroe






Stars burn bright, they illuminate the night, but sometimes they lose their light… they… lose... their light… 


Carrying stars whose light is fading

fractured fragments filled with pain

chasing rays that are waning

suddenly shaded…. 


Never should’ve given in

wending walls within where you wouldn’t win

closing doors before your war weakened me

leaving thieving shores where I shouldn’t be

but then, not sure… there’s no guarantee

still willfully wandering aimlessly

regardless of the guards I can plainly see. 


Been trying to save us both, not knowing your heart was made of stone

bones broken from weighted guilt you’ve thrown

left crying, disowned and all alone

roaming the globe- still no home to call my own

reeling from feelings that I’ve never known.  


I wish we’d never met, memories I can’t forget

scars fill the heart with so much regret

‘cause I thought we’d always be together forever

loving each other, yet you can’t ever forget her

I wish you weren’t like all the rest

but then, yeah... I should’ve guessed 


Oh, how I need this closure… just tell me it’s over……. 


These sinking stars, quickly becoming jaded

pained by the games you play

only so much they can take…

These weakened stars, constantly frustrated

caught in the cage you created

decaying in the wake of one mistake…

Love will sometimes hurt and mostly because of a lack of communication.People have a tendency to talk at each other instead of to each other check out "Take a chance" that I wrote it helps describe how to love again also "Love And Marriage" gives some details on the subject as well this is well written but a bit on the dark side but that's your style if I'm not mistaken

Thank you :)
April, I have to turn off the rap lyrics in order to appreciate the beauty of your words. I can't hear myself read your beautiful poem with lyrics blasting out, even if they are not on loud. The words that are spoken in rap are clear and rattle off in such a way that they diminish the integrity of your work. I loved the message you were conveying in diminishing starlight. Not all stars shine forever. Sometimes, they go dark and they have no light left to illuminate anyone else. A sad state of affairs, but it is true....Great write! (again...:)

This is full of so much emotion and sorrow. It is one of the best sad poetry i've read. Keep writing for us.
Greatly enjoyed.

Past does form a basis of our judgement for others. And if it was not very pleasant, we feel eerie about everyone all the time. Loved the poem, the song, your words. Brilliant, as always.

A poem skillfully written ful of alliterations and metaphors that mimic the mood of the speaker so well. Don't know why but the rhythm almost reads like one of those R&B divas songs.
You put a lot of thought into this and it payed off. :)

I will never understand why some move on too quickly from one relationship to another without taking the time to sort through the post trauma that the end of a relationship usually brings. And, when they jump into a new relationship with lingering feelings from the former relationship, they deny it and pull the other into a deeply complicated web of phantom memories and regrets. Usually by the time he realizes he still loves a past lover the new one has invested their all. I know what this feels like and it's devastating - "sinking stars can become jaded". Great write.

sumptuous write as always. but why the heartache? if he ditched me for someone else, I'd change the lock and forget about him. I' know he'd come back begging to be given another chance. his loss not mine.
that's my take on the matter anyway.
wonderful wording April. what's new, right?
