Sky Lantern

You chose me,
You nurtured me,
You gave me warmth,
Mislead me with false hope,
I thought I finally had a home,
A place to anchor,
I bestowed all of my love and trust in you,
I really did love you!
And what did you do?
You let me go!
When you let me go I hoped for rain,
But the air stayed dry,
Like your eyes,
Cold,
Like your heart.
I shone brighter then the stars in the sky,
I made sure of it,
You watched me,
But not for as long as you could,
You then turned your back on me,
Deep down I knew you would!
In sorrow I kept drifting,
Drifting alone,
I shall forever be,
Until my flame burns out.
