I saw you standing beside, and I couldn’t see beyond your facade. It was a shame you were all quiet and alone, Like a kingdom long gone, an empty throne. I gave you a paper star, and I saw you look up from afar. It was a beautiful to see behind your mask Like a star in the sky, I hoped it would last. I shared my sparse meal with you, and I smiled as we grew. The rhythm of your heart was musical to my ears, Like a novel in disguise, I heard you listen to my tears. I lit a lantern for you, and watched as your shadows flew. It was a relief to cast aside your past, Like a spring flower, I could finally ask. I grabbed your hand and we went, And through the city limits to find our ascent. It was beside the teal ocean, Like watery potion, I felt each heartfelt motion. I leaned in and felt a soft, warm bliss; and lost myself when we shared this. It was when the sky above opened a new abyss, Together, we glimpsed the heavens eclipse.
