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?

The difficult notion of letting go of one's love; knowing that it is the right thing to do even though it is a tragedy to the heart inside.

A well written piece. Full of longing and acceptance. An idea that is universal for all those in this world that have loved or been loved. Nice work.

First of all, it is wonderful to meet you, Yumna.
Why must there always be heartbreak with love? I suppose it is meant to test us somehow, to learn of our strength, and our weaknesses.

Your closing lines brought this well to its fruition..and I have the goosebumps to prove it!

Take care!

You are welcome dear...:)
Such an emotionally visual poem. Here and there moments that hurt, especially when.reading the second time. The finish has to be something final but oh my, it really magnifies the heartbreak, '.Even if it does mean that ~ I'll have a starless sky ~ A world without you...."

Imagine a world without stars.. the darkness must be horrific

Beautifully emotional, and such a realistic theme.
