A Starless Sky

A Starless Sky

A Chapter by Dr. YumnaKay







This dilemma of letting you go, 
or keeping you with me 
is unbearable...
remember you once said: 

"It doesn't matter if we aren't together, 
what does matter is you, 
that among the million stars I counted, 
you were the one, 
who shined brighter every time I looked."

"Some things are not easy to let go
but when the time comes,
you have to make the decision
of choosing what you want."

"When life gives you choices between having it your own way or 
making the person you love, happy and content,
I've decided to do the latter,
'cause although it hurts 
but who does it hurt more than me?
After all, all I've cared is for your happiness.
Even if it does mean that 
I'll have a starless sky
A world without you..."

So painful. I read your words and felt the shadows swallow the sun. How deep in my soul I wish to find a love that is a divine circle, ever flowing, ever feeding the lovers, and the more they give each other the more they have to give. And yet still I seek, for how can a heart survive starless skies?

I'm still floating in between...
A starless sky is just one with shut eyes. And though he plucked you from above you have fallen beautifully in the Ocean, near my shores

Your words make us all think, what would I do in his situation. True happiness is not to be found here. Only emotional survival. A very well written poem, I enjoyed it.
Many Blessings,

I don't know if love and separation go together.
One must make the ultimate decision to leave.
I think when the person makes this choice, no amount of words with soften the blow.

Indeed the pain of letting love go is painful and yet such a noble act of love and selfless devotion. Spoken with a voice of pain and love.

It is hard and all the more, writing it down.
Thank you for the kind words. I appreciate it.
The poem flows with contemplation on parting and pain, coming to rest on a beautiful conclusion. One that is very real, very palpable. A great poem on separation and heartbreak YumnaKay.
