Forever, Written In The Stars

Forever is mine,
You promised it to me.
I own Eternity,
Or so you said to me.
But when you spoke those empty words,
Did you know it, even then?
Did you see the dimming light,
The black oblivion,
The churning river of souls?
Tell me, love,
Did you see forever?
What a dismal place that must be,
Filled with empty promises and shards of broken dreams.
It must be a barren land,
For no imagination can picture it's landscapes.
I prefer the charms of Today,
The magic and mystery of Tonight,
And the immediacy of This Moment.
What a shame that you chose immortality.
Forever, written in the stars.
