Sirius

Sirius

A Poem by Giulia King


Red wine,
Sleeping pills.
Helps me get back into your arms.
"I miss you," I said with a deep broken voice.
"So miss me," she whispered.
"Miss me and then let me go,
don't waste all your precious imagination on me."

She wasn't looking for love when I stumbled into her,
She was looking for serenity. 
 "You've obliterated my soul,
 Your brightness entered my dark crevices,
 the kind of brightness that was enough to fill a dark sky." 
I said as I was staring at the glittering night sky. 

The darkness surrounds me once again 
as I leave my Sirius in the depths of my despair.
What we had together was a transient reality,
 One I'll never forget,
 A bond, I’ll always miss,
 And you, I’ll always love, til' the end of my days and beyond. 

...

Author's Note

Giulia King
Fun fact about Sirius: Sirius is well known as the Dog Star, because it’s the chief star in the constellation, Canis Major, the Big Dog. It’s the sky’s brightest star.
In ancient Egypt, the name Sirius signified its nature as scorching or sparkling.
In India, Sirius is sometimes known as Svana, the dog of Prince Yudhistira.
I can talk about stars forever, they're so magical to me.

Everything here is painted with a deep enchantment. I somehow started with your author's note, which reminded me of the glory of the stars. And then your poetry came to life in each color and shade of their light that fills our skies. There is an awakening pain that grows in your thoughts, yet a sacred bond that glows into the eternal places. Wondrous.

Sirius Black, Haha! :P Not really about him, lol. Thank you for your wonderful review. I'm happy you.. read more
Pain and despair need not always lead to bitterness. Love can go beyond that. The stars are very beautifully and symbolically used. Very refreshing to read.

I'm happy you liked it! :) Thank you.
Very nice;
"What we had together was a transient reality,
One I'll never forget,
A bond, I’ll always miss,
And you, I’ll always love, til' the end of my days and beyond."

That is just beautiful, and it's a sentiment I truly understand.
Brava.

Giullia King,
Inner deep realism of moving through a season. Sky depths are the perfect place to reflect inner process of change. This poem is one of deep emotion which shines as the sky with vulnerability and honesty. so human and vulnerable a write is always refreshing because being human means we are always changing and transitioning.
Blessings,
Kathy

Thank you for this beautiful review, dear Kathy. xo
This is certainly emotional, but you've got some incomplete sentences and verb tenses that disagree. Not bad.

I often never miss a beat, in mumbling a wish upon seeing a shooting star. Intriguing things they, and you expressed that delight here. Cool work!

Aloha Guillia, the stars certainly have a dreaminess and ethereal quality to them. Your opening lines are offered beautifully and capture the heart of being ‘connected’

You’ve captured Sirius beautifully Hawaiian, Kanaka - covet the stars as pacific navigators the stars are guardians of voyage - they appear many times in our stories and songs. Lovely. Mahalo, Izzy

Aloha, beautiful. Thank you for your wonderful review. xo
I like your poem, the stars are magical, I think they're both beautiful and melancholic in the way that some of the stars you see aren't really there anymore. It's like looking at photographs of passed on loved ones. Also I too find the 'Kid A' album very inspiring
