constellations

 

Constellations marked your eyes,

                        haunting, omnipotent, cold

I could do nothing but take you in 

silence. was the cold night 

always so full of longing?

 

My eyes drifted for so long,

until I looked into the 

galaxies within you.

 

Remind me how to live again.
