Life is for the living. Fate is for dying stars.

Star-Crossed

The stars looked

The stars looked down upon them,

The stars looked down upon them, and did not approve–

the celestial judges

the celestial judges winked in their lonely,

the celestial judges winked in their lonely, sterile void,

pronouncing a love

pronouncing a love amongst breathing,

pronouncing a love amongst breathing, laughing, sweating,

pronouncing a love amongst breathing, laughing, sweating, living humans

pronouncing a love amongst breathing, laughing, sweating, living humans to be wrong.

And yet, it grew

And yet, it grew until the only sky

And yet, it grew until the only sky they saw was warmed

And yet, it grew until the only sky they saw was warmed by each other–

and the only stars

and the only stars they needed were

and the only stars they needed were in the other’s eyes.
