"Sunset"

BY MAKENNA KOVACS

 

 

The sun set on us that night, 

and i thought i had walked away clean. 

I found peace within the stars,

and a stillness in the darkness. 

I found hope in the light of the moon,

knowing I still had a grasp on the beauty from the darkness. 

but the sun rose again in the morning,

and i was drawn right back into the brightness of a new day. 

the light was promising,

making me believe that this time would be different,

this time I would be safe. 

but just as the sun had risen,

it didn't fail to set on us again.
