the ever growing darkness

i looked up and into time
deep into the cold and pin-pricked black
and i saw a silvery star go out
like an eye that stopped looking back

i looked up and into space
and the witnesses went away
one after one after one
they fell, lost to the night, lost to the day
until we were consumed
by the ever growing darkness
