when the night comes, the world looks to you
as you scatter stars and constellations
across a sky of fading light.
you rest above them shining brighter than any other star;
it's no wonder i can never look away
from the soft glow of your beauty
against the empty void of darkness.
you gave me shooting stars
on nights i drowned under the black hole hiding between my ribs
pulling at my fragile heart.
all i wished for was you.
all i ever needed was your light.
every shooting star turned into
you brushing my hair back from my face,
trailing stardust along my cheek
as i kissed your honey sweet lips.
the black hole changed to a supernova with your touch on my skin;
colors and fragments and magic burst
and filled me with s t a r s .
when the dawn comes,
you leave me to take the stars away
cupping them lovingly in your palms
as you follow the dying light of the moon;
my heart follows you beyond my reach
and the stars fade away under the burning bright of the sun.
