Stars come out (to light our way)

Don’t take this from us.
As the heart hovers and throbs.
An unending passion that is born in the slightest smile.
And the most agonising cry.
Your words caved in as the world collapses.
Ushering happiness and banishing the ghosts.
What worlds do we hope to die?
Which ruins threaten to drag us down?
You meet me on the dock, that inches out into space.
Into time, dappled in joy and the yet to become.
Like a swirling candied apple planet in our hands.
And we dip our feet into stars.
Watching it all from above.
This sudden shudder and retract.
Of a past that wishes to bury itself.
In a book so eager to close.
The whisper in my ear as the night fades, is you.
Promising me tomorrow.
As dawn washes into my eyes.

  1. I told myself that I wasn’t going to bother Mark with comments for a while because, well, I always do. But damn. Here I am typing out another one because I was absolutely hypnotized by this. I read it through multiple times. Each time, seeing more. I was pulled far from here to somewhere else, watching from above as the scene changed and morphed and played out before me. I felt myself looking down but looking up. Such a beautiful display you’ve once more set before us. Thank you for sharing.
