The moondrops glistening on your skin mapped out more than just stars that needed to be named. They were constellations, solar systems, and galaxies. An entire universe awaited to be explored, and though I didn't know where to start, I knew I wanted to discover them all.

In the beginning, it was just you and I against the world. We were free then. At least, that's what we thought.

It's strange now. Living this way. After all these years apart.

Even now, sometimes, I think I see you in the distance. My heart stalls and stutters as we lock eyes for an instant. But then the moment ends and it's like you're gone all over again.

I feel my heart break in my chest each time it happens, and yet, I move on as if you were never there at all.

To say that I miss you is an understatement. To say that I still love you is a tricky subject.

Back then we were young and carefree. But we were also reckless. I'm older and wiser now. And I know I'm better off liv...

If only you knew
my words were for you.

I poured my heart into those pages,
yet I couldn't bear to sign them
with my name.

I need fire. The moon. Stars. I need to feel the night and the crisp air against my skin. I need to release my darkest thoughts. Let them fly away like ash risen from still-glowing embers, like wood smoke drifting into oblivion.

Don't give me something plucked
from the earth, withering
and slowly dying.
Instead, give me something
that I can use for years to come. Something that matters.
Always give me love.
A kiss. An embrace. Make me forget.
Take my fears away.
Kiss me like you don't need air.
Hold me like you can't let go.
Love me like you'd die without me. Because I'd die without you.

How often
are we left alone
with nothing
but ourselves
and the silence
that's left behind?

My heart is cold,
begging for you
to hold me
and restore
all this lost warmth.

We burned hotter than the sun
and then, in the blink of an eye,
we fizzled out like a broken,
dead star.
The memory
of your skin
against mine
haunts me at night.
At least the memories keep me warm.

Her words were
rich and divine,
filling the universe
with life.
And I devoured them
like ambrosia
as all the
dead stars
felt their warmth.

This wanderlust
coursing through
my veins
wasn't seeking home,
it was searching
for you.

We kissed
under a warm
blanket of stars,
and I heard
the moon
begin to sing.

When I'm gone,
I hope a star
will twinkle with
my everlasting soul,
perhaps then
a little light
will remain of me.
