The Starriest Night

Starry starry night!
The day ain't in memory
Just the frozen night,
One I will not forget in a hurry.

Scary scary night!
The fateful night when you took our life with yours,
Like many harried lovers do.
That you couldn't muster the courage ignites my rage;
That you could leave me alone in the dust
Makes crying; a must.

Scary scary night!
Your silence deafening.
Not just mere killing,
Mere spilling of blood, or
Just another quietus'
Crucified timelessly was I'

Scary scary night!
The big black night -
When the wind shows his might,
When the shadows seem to have a life,
I stand bereft of you - my wife

Starry starry night!
I remember vividly the night
The last time our lips met
The distinct flavor of vodka in you,
Though it was nothing new
But will it ever again be you?

Starry starry night!
In the cold still darkness
Why should I alone stay to fight?
Why shouldn't I join you in your flight?
Yes I am coming to you,
Yes even if it's in heaven, I will get to you
Nothing on earth could come between us'
Neither shall anything in heaven.
