Burning Tides, or, The Star Which Fades

June 29, 2011

I looked up
at the stars and immediately
looked away.
They mean nothing
if you aren’t
looking too.

You are my bridge
which crumbles at the last
minute,
just before we reach
the other side:
safety.

My darling light, how
can you dim? knowing
I need your elusive illuminations.
Might
I rely on you just once?
I am worthless under
your shaking branch.
