Star’s Pain

February 12, 2009 at 10:26 am (Dominic Alapat, Poetry)

No day in the book.

No marbles.

Empty homes,

empty hearts.

No marbles.

Sky’s distance,

its joke.

The buildings’ anger

and loss of speech.

The trees’ death,

bird’s dead song.

Echoes, smoke,

ghosts, lies.

Tears’ pain and love.

Heart’s horror, moon’s

loss, day’s death,

the music’s end.
