I inclined my head to read thoughts I wrote
On a star, which I should have breathed life on
But the sun had sent it off to die
The day dragged itself on
Stretching seconds until they felt like minutes
Countering every effort of redemption.
When again I saw familiar winks in the sky
I looked up and called on the distant light
To give back that which I left behind
It said it was a newly born star
That the one I sought was its older sister
Which the night will never bring back
My rage wore off, I turned to depart
I searched my brain for thoughts, ripe but unhatched
As I saw the rising sun breaching the darkness
For remorse is a play in which I long not to cast
