New Poetry Wednesday, NaNoWriMo 2013 Edition: Over Eyes

This piece is from the third day of NaNoWriMo 2013 and, potentially, a little rough around the edges.

Over Eyes

So many times you tried to tell me
Tell me that the stars mean nothing
Even as they hid your eyes from me
I wished I could believe you true
Suspicion, guilt racked me
Night after night as you left
Left me to face the dawn alone
Cold as I became without stars
Keeping me warm with lies
I could never believe for
I had seen the stars over your eyes
Knowing what they meant as I traced
Traced their pattern over and over
Down to the stars on your knees
Wished you would bend to me
Kiss me tightly whole
Greet the morning together
As the night’s stars had held
Held us bound under their light
Prayed the stars over your eyes
Only figments of my imagination
Not a testament to your cold nature
Nature I craved, I loathed
Every breath I took, I sank
Sank deep into your maledictions
