he took the stars from her eyes
ground them to dust
till the remnants drifed away
on a wind bound for purgatory

and later
years later
when she couldn’t take it any longer
he blamed her
for after all stars do die

but the truth is
darkness will always seek out light
try and conquer it
it wins

but it only takes
a single strand of light
to break free from the darkness
that’s what she found
a small strand of light
of hope
and she walked away
darkness at her back
the world at her front
