Poem – “You are Stardom” – Modern Romanticism – 12/22/2021

You are
The dust in my eyes,
The water that never flows
Until I let go.

You were
The shore of eternal grain,
Countless
Until you became caught - 

In the eye that leaked light.

You were one,
Beside the moon.
You are none,
As I follow gloom.
Why has this mirror shattered?

From white to the void,
Erased into the dark
With infinite flakes of snow
To lose you.

How far
Did the river flow?
Where is the star
That brought the lake close?

How can I reenter so deep
Without leaving you to leak?
