Adrift in the dark,
I am captured by your radiance.
As you pull me in,
I crack open my icy shell.
Bursting into dust,
I shed the crust of old history.
The trail that follows me
Enthrals you like a beacon to pull me closer.
Our entwined splendour outshining your companions.
In a fleeting moment that almost burns me to crisp.
Both knowing I cannot call your sky my own.
I drift away from your warm embrace,
As my trail fades away.
I leave your sky to truer orbits,
My love now sheltered away.
As I face the dark once more;
But not kept:
Will we ever meet like this again?
