Star Wars

He’s a million stars

Lighting up a perfect sky

The blanket of night

Wondrous to the naked eye

Telescoping,

His heart’s astray

The Kuiper Belt

In the Milky Way

Scared to know the truth

So he’ll never hear a sound

Frozen tears fall

But never hit the ground

Shattered

I’m the pieces that linger

In an echo

Of a come hither finger

A million stars

Beyond the curtain of candlelight

I’ll linger in a dream

To escape his heart’s flight

Hindrance

 
I’d like to say I love you

With ten million stars sparkling overhead

And an equal amount of champagne bubbles flirting along with our pheromones 

I’d like to say and do these things

But you’re not with me tonight

Alone I walk the nighttime beach with the grains of sand scattering about 

As the breeze off the whipped foam water drowns out the vastness of the starlight 

And masks the tears of this solitary confinement
