"In The Stars"
(I see your name)
How the stars sparkle so bright in that cloudless night sky high above me & here beneath them I remain so very silent, looking up in wonder with the frosted air biting at my skin & I know that if I were to stare at them long enough they will soon spell out your name. For everywhere I turn my gaze your glowing presence draws forever near, your voice whispering softly into my ear, carried by the warm winds as they visit me in my solitude, & how your image reflects upon every window, every river & every stream that I dare to seek vision.
It's as though you are haunting me & yet you live. As if you are stalking me & yet you are forever distant. For in truth it is merely my heart that disquiets my mind with all of its deep desires bringing life to my thoughts & fabric to my dreams, crafting you into my perceptions both in form & in feature. It's a madness that has corrupted my sanity, but one that I have welcomed in with open arms & a full heart simply because without its daydreams weaving your colour into my lifeless scenes, my world remains eternally desolate, faint, barely liveable & empty.
With a truthful knowledge burning in my mind I am soon to be lost, abandoned in a place where I revert back to that imposing statue standing motionless without a purpose or a meaning. At least with an unrequited love singing loud in my damaged heart from a voice brimming with hope & with passion, my darkest night skies are illuminated with a thousand stars & in every single one of them, I see your name...
