Our Sun

You were the sun, our star
a light that shone brighter
than a thousand flames
drawn like moths
we were pulled into your orbit
mesmerized by the sky in your eyes
a conflagration so intense
it could not sustain itself
the implosion
extinguished your light
our satellite hearts
sent hurtling through a vast, cold void
plunged in darkness
seeking to remember the light
