How to hold on to a star

That dawn, as you left

I laid still on bed and waited.

The grand absence-of-you to settled in thick

like a fog between the furniture, across floors,

and delicate on my skin:

It was kind.

 

Through a curtain slit

I caught a star set

and in an act of romantic desperation,

let it hold my breath.

I even vowed to it-

’til sun do us part’.

 

Locked along one line of sight

we waited while my eyes stung

with minutes, minutes and minutes.

Then, the sky broke

and the star bled out the entire sun

and I watched through her funeral song.

 

The morning shook

with nothing but light

until there was really no point at all.

But, knowing that out in the there

you are,

you are, I can.
