As the stars

Brave are the stars in light eclipsed

Each dawn over their patterns fixed

So might I smile while every kiss

Draws on the dregs of simple bliss

As each embrace only suspends

A dawn to blind, and never to end

    1. Thank you very much! I’m especially glad to hear that line sounds good enough for repetition, I wasn’t sure about it when I first wrote the poem 🙂

      I really appreciate your visits and comments!
