For Nicole, my light

January 20, 2015

I see stars in your eyes
white dwarves in all that space
where I faintly reflect weightless,
moving still towards you.

There are stars
only Gods know about.
Gods like I
can hold them in their hands
and see what they see.

But even stars fade,
so I’ll move closer
into your light,
so you can feel my warmth,
so I can enchant you while you sleep.
Take my breath, lie still;
I have you.

If I could,
I’d pull all the stars to hang around you,
so you could sleep frozen in time,
and I would sleep happy
under starless skies
because I’d still have your eyes.
