You Spoke to Me of Stars

You spoke to me of stars twinkling from my eyes And a moon that rose because I was breathing You whispered

how the sunlight paled next to my heart And the true heat of the earth came from the love in my soul Your words lifted my gaze from the ground to lofty clouds Where you said that I belonged Closer to heaven for I was an angel Sent to save you from yourself

For awhile I held that sparkling galaxy in my hand Until the universe shifted, narcissism reached zenith Shattering the crystal we danced on into shards of truth you thrive on the wounds inflicted with your words and laugh at the falling stars dripping down my cheek
