Disenchantment

Stars

A star here
A star there
Luminous plots
Outlines of purpose
Constellations of reason

By these we set sail, but

Fiery, when they fall
Sometimes a flash
A disappointment
Sometimes cataclysmic

A shaking
A shattering
Of belief
Of trust
Of meaning

The brightest fall
like pulled threads
Unstitching lesser suns in turn
Emptying the sky
Leaving us to wander
To sit with the dark
Until new stars are born
