From Sisyphus: My Darling Star

Sisyphus speaking to the stars remembers his love

Again, my darling star I see your face

among the other stars,

glowing in the night time sky

falling towards me in a blinding light,

luminous and alive,

causing me to pause on this steep hill,

this stone, this weight much lighter now.

I look up at your face above me.

Your smile, your eyes, your long dark hair

lifts this burden from my back

and I am here with you.

Oh, darling star,

your glowing face is all the light I need.

You take away my age, my plight

and I am filled with longing

to hold you to my heart again,

your breasts against my chest,

but like a falling star,

you’re gone. You disappear

into this universe we share,

your orbit out of reach.

Dear Star, my darling Star-

every time you come into my view

I sing, “Oh what a gift you are.”
