love / Poem

Wish you were here….

The last time we were together
we marvelled at the far-off points
of light speckling the sky.
I held you close
and told you how they spend
their days and nights
in a slow burn,
radiating an endless hunger
from their secret places in heaven.

Now, in your absence
each constellation frames
your face in a forest of stars
in every dream
I have ever dreamt.

Each dream is
life’s vivid counterpart;
and each night,
love’s design imprints
itself on me a new,
indelible, defying distance.
