This is a poem based on truth about loving someone out of your reach.

The Sun Rose.

Back in Summer's breakneck days
I gazed at the Sun too long.
Though aware that it was wrong
I couldn't wait for the Earth to turn.
How I gloried in its burn.

So stupid
to want, to touch, then take
a fragment of a star
and set its fiery atom
deep within my kindling heart.

It caught, it warmed, then it consumed.
Ashen, I fell apart.
Sought the clouded sky,
the endless night.
The succor
of the dark.
