Mira, but just one of your names…
I felt you inside of me
before I could utter a word…
our orbits collided,
those surfaces melted
we for so long polished,
daydreaming of that night.
It was only by the mercy
of the vast, dark sky
that I was consumed in your light,
burst into boundless flames
across infinite eyes
searching for you,
just before you receded
into the black night,
where I could only
breathe in
the stream of light
that follows you
wherever you hide,
like the air
of an empty, beloved perfume bottle,
longing for the mercy of the night sky.
