Bella Notte

together we mourn the most
beautiful night
lest we forget its truthfulness
to us
–forgive its burden unto us

nostalgia takes hold in the
dark

vacillating between deceptive longing
and the sincerest of aches
we can do nothing
but feel.

the stars of tonight will forever
burn themselves into
the back of our throats, buried

but there when called upon. This
is not lost on us as we watch
the break of a new dawn illuminate
an era eterna
