Star's Light

A tapestry of stars is woven across the night sky like sequin-covered lace. As I survey the wondrous mass of sparkle, I drift toward you. Are you at this moment gazing upon the same wonder as me? I dream that you are. I imagine our eyes fixed upon this very star, its magical light bathing us both, caressing us as lovers bathing in a secret stream within a lost forest. A wish is imminent as stars go, and so I consider the desires of my heart.

I make a wish for the shimmering beam to flood the inside of me, claiming me by embedding its light within. Light is life, and I need so to be filled with that now. The gentlest breeze washes over me as my hand reaches out and grasps air where your hand should be. You are not here. There is only me.

It is difficult to shine in loneliness, and as I survey this night sky, I whisper a wish for our star to empty its light upon you and me. Surely the light of one star can be spared in a sky so richly saturated. I freeze the picture of this beauty in my mind, and imagine sharing it with you as so many lovers do at this very moment. If you cannot stand beside me now, then please, please look to the same sky I stand beneath, and be with me in my heart. Find me in the vastness of this night, and bring me into the light of your love. Find me my love, do not leave me to wander alone as the love of this star's light finds its destiny within us.

Your writings somehow feels sort of heavenly, I don't know how but you may have ascended up into it the heavens at least spiritually, creatively, or some other way. Angelic passion are the terms I guess that can also best describe your style of writing.

Thanks for sharing and for being such a wonderfully emotional writer. Happy new years and may 2012 be filled with joy and awesome success for you & yours.
