midnight skyscape

stargazing late at night,
i stare shamelessly,
reveling in the wonders
of your radiant flesh.

- - -
i never thought
i'd be able to touch a star.
- - -

shafts of brilliance
ignited behind your eyes,
flared forth in
spasmodically graceful bursts.

fountains of the
clearest, purest blue
gushed forward, blazing love
across the skies.

- - -
they made me wonder,
do stars fall inside my eyes?
- - -

stars lay upon your cheek
when it was over,
subdued, gentle stars that
slipped quietly down your face.

a soft smile, a tender caress,
and a starlit gaze filled
with gratitude, and love.

i had stars on my face too.
