starlight ash

We are dancing and you are starlight

You spin and your laughter explodes in fireflies around  the room

Reflecting off the strobe lights

 

We are dancing and you are starlight

Your hand brushes mine and fireworks ignite

Your eyes are hurricanes, burning holes wherever they touch

 

An invisible promise lingers in the air

And our eyes meet but don’t touch

I watch you on the edge of reality

Dancing in the dark, so close you taste it on your tongue.

 

I am dancing and you are starlight.

The aftertaste lingers, burning my mouth.

All that remains is scattered ash.

I blink and remember the last dance.

I see you.

Falling.

Finally free.

Starlight.
