Shadow man, an unusual human being without a name. You called me one night out of the blue and asked me to run away with you. I was baffled, but as night turned into day we both jumped in your boat and sailed away.
You told me about the lonesome life you live and how you've sailed these seas for many years and was in search of a hand to hold. You told me that I was the most beautiful flower there was. Your world was without a sky and you told me I am the calm of the storm, and that I should stick around for awhile.
You showed me all the constellations and all at once I was lost in space. I closed my eyes and smelled the sea salt and felt the ship shake smoothly over these waves. I laid here with you.
We landed on many civilized city's ports and explored for more. We'd have lunch in the woods, see movies, and explore the inside of museums. Breathe it in because there will come an end.
You told me I wasn't the first you ran away with. There have been others but in the end they always broke your heart. You cried to me on the nights memories found their way back into your mind and knew that one day I'll be the one causing tears when my time ends. If I leave don't worry, don't weep dry your eyes so you can see light and notice that I'll be in the stars. I'll be trapped in time. Just sail on and find the edge of the ocean and become friends with the moon, and stars above, before the curtain falls.
