I've sunk through the stars,
They smile as I play,
Comfort when I sulk,
Give succor at my need,
I love the stars, the moon, and sometimes seek the sun,
Warmth all around me.
People look up high and point,
Imagining a fly-away,
I wave back,

I sink in the stars,
Moon smiling my way,
I say wonderful,
Speak of wonderful memories,
To my stars, my moon,
And tell of when I've basked in the sun's light,
That warming light.

I remember when I used to cry to them,
Used to say when I got cold,
There was no blanket and I didn't want the sun,

I say I miss my home,
Get my suitcase and float off,
I say I'll wish upon them every night,
Icy tears fall from their eyes,
And one falls in my hand,
I hug the stars,
The moon,
And wave to the sun,

"My love is waiting for me," I say

Pale face shown of skies afar,
That soft cheek I kissed while she was still searching,
We listen to the stars at night,
And wish upon every one as bed-time approaches,
We make sure none feel forgotten,
And lay to sleep as the moon sings,

The author's comments:
It's the Smashing Pumpkins fault I'm so obsessed with midnight romance. Their Album "Mellon Collie & the Infinite Sadness" set the stage for that certain emotion which none other has come close to. So my love poems always revolve around the beautiful night which is so close to the pain of being alone which you don't realize could happen.
But it's beautiful in its paleness and apparent purity nonetheless.
