Names in the Stars

a southern moon
is the distance
between the man
I am and the man
I used to be

but she writes
my name in the stars
still

just as I
write hers

it takes
letting go
of what we can’t
live without
to see things
clearly

a beautiful
blonde hair girl
growing up too
fast

everything
will be right
in the end
or the beginning
depending
on how you
look at it

distraction
opens my thoughts
letting demons in

a bible belt
prison cell
a murder
of the mind

I will see things
through
this time

those blue eyes
will love me
again
