Lonely Stars
Aaron Ruth

What if the stars
are only remaining flames
of promises ended too soon

An “I love you forever”
still burning bright
up beside the moon

A hand held
perhaps too tightly
then never held again

Just because
you broke my heart
does not mean our flame has dimmed

Promises are not like hearts
unable to crack
always true

The lonely stars
the empty nothings
the abandoned “I love you’s”
