Black Hole: A Poem

Gel has been trying to write poems since she read Slammed by Colleen Hoover in 2013.

All these lights came from you.

All these lights came from you.

Black Hole

It all started with a simple advice
Then we felt safe enough
To spill all the tea
One by one

We've been friends for years
We started resembling each other
We're often mistaken as twins
I was so thankful

Because I hated myself so much
It made me feel confident
Whenever they think we're alike
You're Ms. Congeniality, I'm just a nobody

Years passed by, something went wrong
And we almost didn't know
Who we were anymore
We were so lost

So I kept on searching for anything bright
But darkness kept on eating away
The light I have managed to salvage
Still, I kept on looking

"We're in this together"
I remember chanting that mantra
As if to comfort myself
Because deep down I know

While I was desperately losing
All of my starlights
You were the one
Who was wasting it away

Until the little dazzles
Were replaced with your gloom
And it was too late
When I realized

In our own darkness
I gave away
All my light
Just for you

I lost the path
I have treaded on
When I walked these forests

Still you kept on demanding
That I give you another ray
You asked for too much
And still I confer

Until I faded to inexistence
Became the darkness surrounding us
You said you'll find a way to bring back my light
But all you looked for is another way out
