Between Stars

by Ben   Dec 7, 2017


It used to be, when we kissed
the world fell away,
hearts were full and nothing mattered
as long as we had each other,
now, we fall away,
from each other,
I’ve danced to this song before
and the tempo feels the same,
The notes feel similar,
and I hope, more than ever
that this intuition is way off….

Because the gaps between the stars
are cold when I’m alone.

    Such gentle assembling of words. You remind me of the other Ben who left us.
    Oh how much more I would enjoy if you finished it by "when I am not with you" instead. For me that, would give more ability to relate to the concept of coldness.
    But it is only me. Everyone has his own taste. The piece is already perfect on its own.

    This is the kind of poem that leaves a mark somewhere, just so beautiful and the sadness in here is captivating, expressed in a beautiful tone.

      thankyou MG :) there is often beauty in sadness and sadness in beauty....this is why I love to write, to be able to express it so that others can "feel" it too is an accomplishment.
