You led me to the pavement’s edge
where water sipped at grey sidewalks
and moonlight overflowed onto our feet.
You held the starlight in your eyes,
singing waves of love to me
to break like music in my ears.
We caught a breath of time between us
as eternity bathed the evening in light
suspending us in bright forever.
I went down to the pavement’s edge
where you slipped my hands into yours
our feet glittering on prism sidewalks.
I tried to see your starlight soul
shining tear-like on your cheeks
and feel a mighty ocean love,
but time exhaled to divide us,
eternity bled over the pavementand I denied you my forever.
