Image for the poem in the weeping hours

in the weeping hours

I ache starlight inside my dying time
secret sin devours...

in my weeping hours
I seek sanctuary
inside the silence of my prayers
bitter in my regrets
I lament
choking on my tears

my confessions well up
but with no priest to listen
there will be no absolution
only payment in full
when the devil comes to collect
a dying love his due

with I ache starlight
and forgive me on my lips
I die a little more inside
while stars crash to the earth
a lover's death

to burn so hot then fade away
jilted feelings pressed in my diary of secrets
speak against me
in my quiet times, I contemplate
holding tight to our memory

I never saw the end coming
tenderness turned into loneliness
I don't know when it happened
I turned and look
and saw my love of forever
turn again and saw a stranger

I still love you
my best friend and confidant
we streak across the skies
burning with a passion
then with one last twinkle fade away

it will break my heart to watch you go
I don't know if I will survive it
only the stars know
my soul weeps for the morrow
