Stars We Forged

I sat with my ear to the wall

listening to all the things you never said

while the sound of your heart pulsed

across a distance lost to the wild road

Through woodlands I walked hand in hand

with the memory of those stars we forged

together in a night that should never have ended

but burned away as all do on the altar of dawn

And now without a voice I wander

across a place with no roads, no direction

only away from you, even as I keep your flame in sight

towering out there over the horizon

Here I am, repeating to myself and wondering

knowing that one day soon you’ll send your message

and hoping with half a heart that it never comes

What’s the next book on your list to read? If you have one, that is.

  1. My compliments as always.
    I think I’ll read ‘Atlas Shrugged’. I’ve always been interested, the name has always intrigued me and it’s time for me to come to my own conclusions about the story. It’s a big bite, will probably take my time chewing it.

  2. This. …I am struggling with words… This strikes me in a way I can not begin to explain.

    To answer your question, a year plus later, recently started on Time Enough for Love by Heinlein with Big Magic by Gilbert waiting in the wings.
