Poetry of Stephanie Bennett Henry, Uncategorized



Loving you meant everything to me.
You had the ability to turn my heart
into the moon, sometimes so full
but other times, so small, I was
almost invisible. I promised myself
I would never let anyone control
the rhythm of my heart and I broke
that promise for you. I would have
given you galaxies and lyrics and
poetry and… well, everything… but
I would still only be a sky full of stars,
too cloudy for you to ever see and a
song with music, always too loud,
for you to hear the lyrics.
-Stephanie Bennett-Henry
