forsaken

there was the greatest silence,
as all the stars of the universe,
lowered, and slowed
their eventually demise,
their endless expansion,
their timeless extinction.

we once shared all the new things,
the beautiful things,
the sound of a ferry horn,
the clickety-clack of the tracks,
the thick shadows thrown by the moon.

we once wore each other hearts
on one another’s sleeves,
shared the same dreams,
laughed at the liner notes
on favourite record sleeves.

now just the stars,
pulling apart in their cold
perfect isolation, stretch
far beyond all i could see,
and as surely as the growing
salt lines on my shoes,
i realise all that is forsaken.
