Starless

On my back in fallow fields
wet with dew,
black without you.
The space in the heavens
where your face once lived,

…starless.

I’ll trace you there
to pretend you’re near
and keep eyes open
burn your image clear
so to never forget
shadowed features divine,

…starstruck.

But it’s when I finally
close my eyes
when my ears
hear my heart
speak your name
my love pounds,

…starshine.
