Eyeful of stars

Image result for forbidden love drawing

Lost in the sheets yet never finding the bed

That night no poetry came home to rest

No contentment but daydreams banishing sleep

Of a dance in the dark and a touch on the cheek

This false-beating heart will twist her awake

While yearnings prick sweeter than honour or faith

An eyeful of stars to corner her dreams

Her innermost faults become her innermost seams
