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 is a favorite star & concept for me. You do a great job of telling this story so we can't tell exactly what kind of lover is being addressed. Is the star the actual lover or does the star symbolize a human lover? No answer needed, I'm showing how the reader questions your nuanced ideas while reading. I also love the way you use dark & light to convey aspects of relationship (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

I like here how your love for stars is depicted as a loving relationship.
I do find stars fascinating and mysterious. Whenever I stargaze, I realize how vast and beautiful the universe actually is and how blessed I am to be alive and part of the grand scheme of things designed by The Creator of the galaxies and human souls, Fauna and Flora.

Well done!

Enjoyed it with the note and the image in place.
Stars induce dreams, longing, and relaxation with the gazing.

Your writing is beautiful Giulia. To put a constellation in a lover's way takes creativity. Your poem lends magical and mythical images for the reader. Dark colors that shine boast life and celebration to the night sky is what i brought home with me. Well done young lady.
Peace,

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.

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
