with ice stretching up the window and the sun’s reflections dancing on car hoods i told you when the warmth returns, we’re going to stargaze. you tilted your head as a puppy would, questioning the spontaneity of such a wish. i had said i was just thinking. but i lied because every time i fall into your eyes i gaze at the universe inside, brimming with possibility, every time i lose myself in your eyes it’s because i’m too busy stargazing, diamonds of wishes that never could be, remnants of dreams that could each set me free, the sun and moon bold and stark against the universe, you ache to give me it all. but for once, i wanted you to see what i fell in love with so easily.
