notMetaphor Poetry There are stars out tonight

There are stars out tonight





There are stars out tonight

and though I am blind

they rain down as desert sand in water

 

You dance beyond sight

veiled by the breeze

I know your motions

from the wind across my lips

it slips and folds

rolls across my body

almost a caress, but not

almost a kiss, but not

almost love, but what can approach that?

 

You dance beyond sight

but I know your motions

they touch, brush

they tease about me

and are as the wind

 

I have closed my eyes

blind to you

but aware nevertheless,

the air is warm, soft

spirals up the scent of your body

and though I breath it in

and though it soothes my soul

I cannot look

I cannot touch

I cannot love

for it is only the wind

 

There are stars out tonight

and I am blind
