Love's Laundry

by Janala

I kept your clothing article as a small reminding particle
of the night the stars shined brightest. 
But I fear, never again will I witness that brightness my friend.  

There is nothing sweet in the sorrow of parting forever.  
In the darkness I wallow and never able to return your love or your article.  

It's been washed & rinsed and hung-out to dry, 
but I was careful not to die (it) or bleach it, 
that would surely cease it from be(ating)ing the thing 
that reminds me of the night the stars shined brightest.
