...Scars of the stars

By SolApathy

...Scars of the stars


Whispers of the memories of millions
Some friends, some foes
Some you remember
Some you’ll never know
As light pollution contaminates the heavens
Stars disappear from a once beautiful sky
You would never know these were once souls that could fly
People loved, people let go, people never known
Can I be one of the forgotten? 
I won’t fight
Stopped dreaming long ago
My smile the emptiness you now see
As you look to a sky that will soon no longer be.

    The title makes you sad, and then once you start reading you can feel the emotions flow. Great read. :)
