Ice on skin exposed to night
calling to the sky, the moon obscured
begging it to crumble away...
You like the rising moon give light to this land
Shrouded in night unending
Windows are opening to let in the cool breeze
Playing with the shadows you cast...
I was distracted by the moon when voices fell like rain
And brought me back from the light beyond that distant window
Your smile an anchor in storm-tossed seas
Hands that calm the fire for now...
We met at the crossroads
Beneath a different moon
Edges like water, the stars falling
A constant rain of glittering dust
Always beginning at the same place
