Dream 061514

He points to the sky
overcast by fog
and asks if I see Orion,
but I trip before I can look,
and fall for him.

He lies down on the ground
with his face so close
my breath steals his smile
and hides it beneath a rib
for safe keeping.

And if I said you were beautiful…
he whispers in the shadow
that dances on the sidewalk
between our lips.

The stars would fall, too.

  1. Ah, but were those stars to fall, I could grab them, hold them close, demand they tell me their stellar secrets.
