our north star

you painted the sky for us

and gave us a north star

to look to always

we followed it mesmerized

but when it rained

the colors came down,

dropping everywhere

our north star

waterlogged and dull

sank to the ground

we woke up from our daze

wiped the water from our eyes

held our empty hands open

realizing it was all a lie
