Fading Out

In the twilight,
I stare out the window
to watch the stars
beaming with promise
while I am fading out.

I said I would shine
one day long ago
but the color’s
left my cheeks
and the light died.

When morning arrives,
I open sleepy eyes
wishing I could have
slept through the night
and never woken up.
