You are

A silent storm
Breaking on a horizon


By the bones
Of betrayal

You are

A cold sun
Burning my heart


By the chill heat
Of hate

And I am a star
Distant dimming dying
All light lost.

Welcome! This is superb; the imagery is brilliantly sustained and concise. So few words expresiing vastnesses. My only tiny quibble is that I think 'dimming' and 'dying' is too much at the end - I'd be inclined to chose just one.............Very fine piece.

SaintG, this is lovely; I like the brevity - I could enjoy: "You are/Blackened/You are/Cindered/And I am a star". The rest is extra.

Very good - welcome to WW and write some more!
