Saturn Rising

The sun set behind a veil

Still twilight stripped me

Exposing my truth

Feel the yesterdays

Fall around me

As the night’s faint light

Traces every beat

Of my heart

While the first star

Confessed my life’s journey

Straight into your arms

Love commands me

To submit 

To time’s opaque omnipotence

And throughout the night

Your tenderness is all that remains

Upon my flesh
