Refraction

Like a star and unknown sphere

We both whirled in our worlds

Enchanting- to each others view

Drawing closer in our universe

Nature took lead of our hearts

And like children, we followed

Time continued to ticktock

As I- blindly became seduced

Within an eclipse of thoughts

Your gravitation pull; alluring

Our seductive dance, addicting

I convinced myself, it was love

And resigned, to gift all I was

But then came the darkest of times

Where I was tidally locked to you

All I was, became exhausted, dust

I barely subsisted inside lost chaos

As you- calmly overshadowed- us

I’m now another vanquished planet

You left behind while passing through

Who knew, your light was…truly dark?
