How can I love you more?
On this warm summer night,  I sought intently  for a solution……

When suddenly my eyes journeyed afar….
Fixated on the illumination and activity of nights bright stars,
Which led me to an apparent constellation -
A pattern of stars spelling out your name -
So beautiful, so radiant that its existence and purpose
Only God could explain.
I stared in awe and marveled for some time -
till something happened-something strange.
The stars abruptly shifted, no longer spelling CHARMAINE.
An arrow took form and its head  meant VAIN -
In my direction  … Swiftly it aimed…
Piercing my heart and exposed its pollution
….. I never loved her

    A powerful self-revelation... the realisation that love does not exist can be overwhelming. Well done my friend! Best wishes, Keith

    An interesting concept, seeing your love's name in the stars, and then suddenly watching the feelings disappear as the stars move through the night sky. This gives us much to ponder, Larry. Very intriguing poem!
