"A Death of Many Stars"
White fragments of the clouds obscure the winter sky behind a
swirling tapestry of motion, never stilling, never stopping, and
making me wish that there were a way to fall up instead of down.
You grin widely and throw your head back to catch the flakes in
your mouth. I watch them vanish against your lips, like little
stars tumbling heedlessly to their deaths, and wish I were one.
I don't care if I have to die to do it; I just want to kiss you
Little starflakes, so delicate, so gorgeous . . . and you're
destroying something beautiful without even realizing it. Would
you stop, if I told you that? I want to know.
"How can you ruin something so pretty?" I ask, and you pause.
"They are kinda pretty, aren't they?" you agree, smiling at me.
You've missed the point.
Then you kiss me, and I wonder if you don't just understand it
even better than I do. So I let myself melt into your arms; and
let myself forget what it was to be just me, and then something
truly beautiful is born in a place where the souls of a million
stars are dying.
