It’s Like The Stars – D.Diamond ’21

Its like the stars have

Fallen from the sky

And landed

On the surface of the ocean

And that ocean, frozen

Mid wave.

While the stars proceed to sparkle

A landscape of fireflies

A vast expanse

Easing my eyes toward

Accepting the fallen angels

Frozen in the sea.

Your shadow

Slips, slowly

A finger, then a smile,

I wait

I wonder

When the first crow rose

& broke the silence of the dawn announcing

Your escape.

Return

Deep, in this fading darkness

I know

The taste of something too sweet

Just right

And creeping along

On our moonless night

And my song

And your song

And our song

Was the song on repeat 

In the bar I will never set foot in again.
