Hidden among the stars

There’s a secret I share with the stars.
I admit that you’re still buried in my heart.
A glutton for sin,
I still imagine
writing, “I Love You” on your skin.

Staring at the cosmos,
the memories of you still ebbs and flows.
I just need one more kiss
from those intoxicating lips
to get drunk off your love again when it happens.

A trickle of flashbacks together
last as long as a meteor shower.
When the moon begins to set,
I’ll try my best to forget
that I’m alone again.

  1. Hard to find the right words
    To express the amount of divine
    in this poem.
    It feels like drinking
    The most delectable wine
    The kind that is pure love β€”
    It’s sufi-esque sublime.
