Star Man

The memory of our embrace lives
in my arms,
adjacent to our dreams and desires
left on these sheets
drenched in our scent.

Beneath the sounds of your breathing
lies a moment of light
reflecting a passion
that brought me back to the living

Under the pillows also,
an aroma
alive and ours – and the long list
of names we have bestowed
on this new love.

a part of our life lives there too, the one
who knows the names of all stars and constellations.
my one and only star man.

So lovely poem Ashe well done sweetie

so so beautiful and how i have missed your words ( as i have been away). Beautiful. stars and constellations. wow!!! who can beat that. people who look up and guide you to another world, waiting to be discovered by you. Lovely!

This is gentle. A kind of soft yearning flows through the poem. I like that very much. And I hope that you are getting better. :)

This is so wonderful. I hope you are getting better and a star man is just what you need. Maybe he will find a new constellation and name it after you. Your work always has so much deep passion.

This beautifully warm and tender, lovely and sensual poem sways so softly. It moves perfectly with the words. It leaves me with a sigh. Wonderful.
