The Shooting Star

This was an obscene observation,
seeing through one’s mind a terrible happening.

The naked truth was always dangerous.
I close the eyes of a beloved day.
The first lover hovers over the trees
like an invisible ghost.

By transforming the obsession
into the wholeness of a metaphor,
don’t you externalize the center,
of a theme?

Integrity was never your forte.
The light within was fading,
sheer escape.

I believe in a spring faithful to sun,
where the searching ends.
The body melts into melodies,
and the shooting star of midnight,
leaves a trail of fire.

It opens the sky, the blade, the freckles.
