Stardust in Your Hair

Our story wasn’t heaven our ending even worse my spaceship now flies solo across the universe if there’s any life on Mars I haven’t got a clue the only thing I know for sure is I’m still loving you searching through the galaxy for stardust in your hair we lost our love forever our hearts beat no more there flying through the universe with orbits in my eyes no twinkle star to wish upon or wipe away my cries the time is passing by and I am growing old you are always on my mind my heart just won’t go cold we left one million miles behind your love has all gone I haven’t reached a planet yet to land my spaceship on searching through the galaxy for stardust in your hair I lost your love forever your heartbeat’s no more there flying through the universe I maybe won’t survive the silence of your memory it’s there that I arrive ~Shane Golden

Your last two lines got me, I understand that very well. There isn't enough room at Poetry soup for the losses I incurred. But God kept me going...you must too! You write well. Do not stop Panagiota

Awww... thank you so much for the kind words. I was hoping there would be others who could connect with it. I wrote it for my mother and my ex. I lost them both at the same time. My mother was killed in a car wreck last year...(her husband of five years drugged her so she’d fall asleep at the wheel on her way to work... for insurance money). One month later my 7year relationship abruptly ended with the person who I thought was my soulmate... never saw either one of these losses coming! I love sci-fi so I wove all of it together. So that’s the backstory... and it’s only the second poem I’ve ever written! So thank you again for the kind words! I sincerely appreciate the time you spent reading it and reaching out. XO
