in the stars

swimming in the indigo night above,
we were immortalised by the stars.

how they heard our quiet words,
saw the smallest smiles,
hair billowing out window sills,
highway blues at twilight,
silhouetted by the horizon laughing breathless,
arms spread wide to the sky.

captured by the pinpricks of light,
in a million years when our time is done,
they travel on,
remembering the years
we sang our voices hoarse,
we ran danced laughed at the edge of the world.

I could have frozen those moments in time,
delicately into amulets of amber,
threaded soft blue string through,
hung them on our necks against our chests.
we were immortalised by time,
we live on through the night.
