Let the spirits of the constellations fall into place
Let them transpire into diurnal eclipses of aspirations
An eternity of wandering in the empty dark
Lit up by the warm of your light
Let this be the chorus to the ode of our favorite song
Let the wave of your kisses on my back be a skin stitched memory
An eternity of identical rings
Let the waves from mine resonate in yours
Your arms are the circle of light wrapped around an eclipsed moon,
a glowing show of protection.
Your smile personifies the sun; bless the darkness in my heart,
Let passion overflow from it.
An eclipse is the cosmic meeting of two estranged lovers.
Fate conquering distance and time.
And that’s why my prayers talk about you in my arms.
