light the candle




starry night by alex rueiz

*
we lay at  sunflowers edge
blisteringly golden
night moths hum in our ears
whispering warnings
we imagined owl silhouettes
bats swooping to catch our scent 
come suicidally close
our hands entwined 
catching handfuls of stars
feeding our wonder
illuminated clouds drift
shadowing our closeness
lighting the candle of knowledge
you trace constellations 
planet to milky way
across my heart
