the stars are blurring tonight (for G.)
the stars are blurring tonight
strung high above us, the ice blue stars
sparkle solitary and strong.
there is comfort in their shining; hope in their silent song,
as we keep our orbits private, for fear of being wrong.
something happened in my heart tonight.
with all the impact of a solar flare,
as i was felled in earnest; the castle crumbled alright
in the shelter of your stare.
my secret heart, sags in on itself, so helpless,
so unsure in beating true,
as wearied, heavy hopes, become much lighter,
so much more real, for the time i spent with you.
what bread time may break, is hushed for now
as we lie separate, dreams held in amber.
this moment, frustrated, unlike any other,
a man too scared, to take your hand and show you how.
