AloneStarry eyed as we lay,
Nights with you shine bright as days.
Hold me close when we're alone,
Your heart is my new found home.
As we look at the sparkling sky,
Your eyes sing me a lullaby.
I gaze at you with a longing stare,
A warm breeze flutters in the air.
Safe inside your tight embrace,
You look down and kiss my face.
Then all at once you disappear,
I'm cold and alone, laying here.
So unexpected, and so wrong,
You took away where I belong.
I hear your whisper in the wind,
but when I try to find you, you're gone again.
DreamYou arrived in a dream,
with ethereal clarity,
and your smile
shone bright as a thousand suns.
I remember you in perfect form,
and I would like it to disappear
for it was truly just a dream,
and I have been doing so well.
All day I have mulled you over in my mind,
and all day I have retreated to the soft darkness
that was your warmth.
I do not want your warmth to settle in again,
for you now love another,
and my love is ever so slowly
Your smile burned into my brain,
dreamlike and lovely and everything you were.
And all that you were,
will not be again.
Northern StarThese nights are so warm,
and fresh with laughter.
So real, finally, it's a change.
Cigarette smoke lingers on my clothing
and the stars above are burned into my skin.
I look at these scars,
red and pink lines of light.
And I think of times that have passed,
each faded line a forgotten memory.
Butterflies and cold goodbyes,
a drink, a kiss, the ones I miss.
Reminders of who I am.
The starry night sky,
dirt roads and highways,
a map to guide me home.
I think of you,
and I smile,
because home is in your arms.
Curved under the covers,
my body longs for your shape
to fit so perfectly into mine.
I wish for highways in front of me,
I would drive so fast in the night,
and the northern star
would bring me home.
