Stars

I’m always just fine
until the stars show up..
that’s when you flood my mind
kind smiler,
peaceful whisperer,
and what do you have to do with the stars anyway ?
maybe it’s the way they love to see themselves
reflected in your eyes
or how they always seem to form an arrow
pointing the way to you
I don’t know
but here they come …
and there I go again…
dreaming forbidden dreams
where love rules the world
and soft lips are the only penalty
for my crimes…
thirty kisses,
no chance of parole

when the cool air returns
sometimes I ache
for a forgotten time
perhaps a lifetime or two ago
when her warm arms
were the only comfort I needed
her soul, my food
and the reason for living,
for loving…
the details are fuzzy, you understand
yet at times, .
they come within teasing distance
mostly,
when the stars show up…
