Dripping Starlight

Dripping Starlight

A Poem by that-little-green-monster



You left me here,

Dripping in starlight.

A broken heart,

With no hope of being mended.


Now I know why we danced around the subject.

I already knew the answer,

Just didn't want to hear the words said.

Now I know why I hated the stars,

When you always loved them.

You left me dripping in the starlight.


Scary little words,

Come flying out your mouth.

"I don't love you,

And I never did."


How could you,

Love something like me?

Someone who pushes people away,

And gets hurt way too easily.

I knew that from the start,

Yet somehow I'm stuck here,

Stuck in the heartbreak,

Feet glued to the ground,

Dripping in the starlight.

Oh my!
This is so sad.
But beautifully written.
I especially love the 2nd stanza!
And the last one :P
Very well written.

This is a wonderful but sad piece. Honey, if they don't love you, don't waist your energy loving them. Easier said than done, I know, but that's what hurts you. We all push people away because the one that is meant for us will push back and break through. You will be that important to someone someday, just take your time. Don't search or seek them out, just take a break and look into yourself, and learn to love it. That way, when the right one DOES come along, you'll be able to love them properly and fully like you both deserve. I love your wording in this poem, and the repeated term 'dripping in starlight'. Beautiful.

This is really good. I get the mental image of the speaker perceiving himself to be the darkness between the stars, while he envisions the one he loves to be the object f starlight in his life. The loyalty of the speaker's love though is what shines through this piece. Also, as the reader, I identify with the speaker's hesitation to open up to the one who left him. It's almost like he/she subconsciously knew this would be their end from the beginning, but just couldn't let it hold him/her back. I love the imagery of "dripping in the stars." It reminds me of rain, dying, shooting stars, and the loss of the light of one's heart: love.

Great piece.
