Inside Your Hands-A Tragedy

Inside Your Hands-A Tragedy


I crawled into the safety of

The palm of your hand

And though the stars of the galaxy inside

Were annoyingly bright

It was okay

 I got tired of the light

And slipped into the darkness

And the stars became a part of me

And though I took them for granted

It was okay


You got tired of the light too

And you crushed the galaxy

That we had so long danced in

But dear, did you realize

You crumpled me, too?


You are writhing in the darkness

And pulling me down too

My eyes, they’re dimming

Even though my head’s above water,

It’s not okay

The first two stanzas got crammed together after posting. I apologize
