Lonely Star

Come, my lonely star
We follow the path
The circuit closes
in a minute; the current is ready,
Set to take a detour
to momentarily stop the beat
Like a captured moment
on photographs.
See how our lenses meet?
Don’t blink, please;
Hold our gaze
Till the lights go off
So I’ll know your place
As you know mine.

My lonely star, hear my words
They bring you to me
Like the pull of our magnets
Forever meant to be.

Hold me, lonely star
I woke up from a bad dream
Like eggshells into pieces
My world shattered
Like yolk and white,
dripping,
My tears betray me
My words won’t tell you
How my feet leave the ground
To catch the wind.

Sit here, lonely star
No distance is short enough
But I see more in the dark
And shadows say much.
The lines are cut
But the trees are still up
Like the dew on the leaves
I fall and stay alive.

Wake up, lonely star
The night is ours
Our eyes see what they cannot
Our voices call us to a place
Only we know about.

Lonely star, say no more
My feet now leave the ground;
Your heartbeat’s in my ears,
My weight’s in your arms,
No more doors to think about.
The key is yours;
We dance till the power’s out.
