You were the sun,
and i so desperately wanted to be your planets and your moons.
To live beside your greatness, and bask in your light.
So when I had to leave,
I was lost wandering in the dark, with no idea where to go.
But after those first few days, I realized you were not the sun.
You were not my beacon of hope.
There was, instead, a fire inside me.
Whose flame had dimmed after the oxygen stealing blows that you caused.
But as the days went by, the fire grew stronger, and so,
once again i had found my sun.
This time only to realize that I was the sun,
and it was time to live in my own greatness, instead of be a shadow to yours.
