Lights Out

You turned the lights out

In my heart

My eyes shut out your brightness 

Inside velvet eyelids 

Interior like quiet, plush blackness

The days stretched on 

Filled with punctuations of joy 

And quiet sadness.

My cheeks were rosy and my eyes sparkled before you

Turned the lights out
