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 stars.
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.
