To watch the stars with you.
The night was on fire, emblazoned with meteors,
Though I stood there shivering
Like a sailor lost in a sea
That was falling around him.
A million lifetimes were lived
On the balcony that evening,
Watched by a cosmos that said,
“this is yours, and yours together.”
You stood there dazzling,
Like a girl with the universe
Woven between her fingertips;
Like a girl in Vienna once held
Eternity on a balcony on a cool
Summer night like this one.
You looked at me and I melted
At the supernova of you
Because I knew that if I stared too long
I’d start to believe in the heliocentric nature of us:
You were destined to be my star,
Always pulling me towards your orbit.
