Supernova

Supernova

A Poem by terry smith

The sun laid it's face upon the earth 

then 
disappeared 
& one by one the stars came out 
just to glimmer 
in 
your 
eyes 
& in that moment 
time stood still 
& your beauty 
took away my 
oxygen 
that was long ago 
& now the only thing 
I see 
when I look into your face 
is 
your 
lies 
here we go again 
round & round 
it never ends 
& I am not 
thinking clear 
can you teach me 
how to walk away 
from the 
one I love 
when everything 
the sun the moon 
& stars above 
reminds me of her 
& now 
I am 
so 
all 
alone 
please forgive me 
I don't know 
what I'm saying 
when 
your 
not 
near 
just one look 
at you 
& I get 
sucked into your vortex 
& disappear 
I once knew who I was 
but now I'm just your chameleon 
to match the 
clothes you wear 
the binds 
cut so tight 
that I 
am 
bleeding 
& I 
don't 
care 
blinded by your supernova 
I can feel it 
as it 
peels 
my 
skin 
can't wait 
for this 
to be over 
so I can 
crawl out 
from within
