Sparks and clouds like stardust,
Her soft kisses lit my mind,
Filled it with fire and darkness
That set my lips ablaze.
But the taste of her was fleeting
Like a whisper on the wind
For among the stars she dwells now
And not in the earth I know.
I’m left drowning in the river,
Straining to taste my star once more.
My appetite left unsated,
Throat as parched as dust.
