Garlands of Stars

Garlands of Stars

Underneath the stars
Where our souls collide
And break the darkness
Into scorching flame,
We stand in
Secret embrace
And kiss each other's hidden dreams
Into reality.

Fear has no place
In this starry ocean
Where mermaids and sirens are chased away,
And the fireflies dance above our wondering heads.
Your smile caresses this shell of mine
And my heart smooths your tensions into the void
As we breathe in spirit-shared incense.
Worries do not belong with us,
Just a sliding beauty of infinite tears
In this space,
This celestial room of intimacy
That we dare to wish our own.

Garlands of stars sweep the skies with joy
And settle upon our shoulders
As we lean into each other and
Rest this night in shared eternity.

When the morning dawns,
We'll see the kiss of sun upon earth,
And be glad for the handful
Of seconds we spend together.
For whilst they are all we have,
They are more than the birth of a universe,
More powerful than the thundering fists of gods,
And more gentle than the kiss of snow on bare, frozen skin.

Our lamplight guides the way for each other,
For just a few moments.
And life is richer,
More stunning,
More filled with the beauty of infinity
That we rush through
When we look into each other's eyes.

When the dawn comes,
These garlands of stars
Will still shine brighter than the yawning sun
Because they are ours.
