Uh oh I say
Pow! my heart goes
Tick Tock, he said
Bang! There goes my love
Tick Tock ... SHH
and everything is silent
like the midnight stroke
Where the stars close their eyes
afraid to see blood on the ground.
Click, I turn off the light
In the dark I hear the night outside
Tap tap, the stars are crying
A deep fog hugs the world.
A sigh escapes the night
As the wind brushes the tree branches of a willow
Against my tear stained window
Zap! A flash of light illuminates the clouds
A river full of secrets invades the night.
Explosion! She clutches her heart
Beneath her hand a light glowing
Ouch! She burns her palm
A warm throbbing takes its place.
A star twinkling through her fingertips
“Hello,” he says.
“Hi.” She lifts her head.
They smile, two pairs of eyes in the dawn.
