One day you'll forget completely
While the earth slowly rotates under you
I knew you had given up long ago
Why were you still holding on
A ghost left to drift through familiar places
Like the faintest light filtering through that window
Moving across the floor, rehearsed like your words
I saw the burn marks from a previous chapter
And smelled the smoke that lingered in my clothes
Mundane items or places
Now occupied by an emptiness
I still look back to the world slowly dying that autumn
Forever mirrored inside you too
A beautiful and internal winter
Take one capsule a day, and melatonin at night
Keep a rhodonite stone for grief
I remember gazing at the night sky through a borrowed telescope
The only remainder of what wasn't discarded
Keepsakes, now debris, sent away like that letter
And now the space between each star seemed darker
No matter how bright they burned
Maybe God extinguished them with His breath
But it was probably the light pollution
I bathed in time from other worlds
The chill in the air just before a snow
The shiver in your core when you can't keep warm
The temperature on my phone read 44 degrees
And then I saw it, unadorned and modest
The nearest star to us, over four light-years away
The dim glow of a sun as it was, four years ago
Photons from a past life
I wondered if someone on a planet near that star had a much more powerful telescope
If they could point it here, right now
Would they see a past version of me
Lifting my grey eyes up towards them
Four years ago, before any of this ever happened
One day you'll forget completely
As the earth slowly rotates under us
One day you'll forget completely
No matter how bright
One day you'll forget completely
That there will always be this hollow
One day you'll forget completely
Like unlit space between stars
One day you'll forget completely
The moon still burns above me
