Vacuum

by DBLevin

Stars defined by color, shape, and size
twinkle like one million eyes
they shatter, shiver, blindly
in our way, we live, and still it hurts
giving up to every sunken lie
the story of some empty, shallow, dry,
emotionless girl who promised
just like all the others promised
destitute and honest
we are all alone
and still we can see
from star to star
just how black it is
