Garland of stars

Have I not whispered 'I love you' a thousand times

Have I not pledged every star in the sky as a garland

For your ankle, your wrist and your pretty neck

Have I not pleased you in every way I can?


I have been waiting to hear from you

Hurting to hear from you, dying to hear from you and

Yet no word for weeks. Shall my wrist bear the blade marks

Of despair before a word of love is uttered in my defence?


What have I done, what have I not done? I ache for the

Draught of your cologne, the touch of your hand, your shadow

On the wall, your voice, your lips, your kiss, your body sliding

Towards mine – sensations branded on my heart forever

Indelibly printed on my soul


Don't do this to me I beg, I am nothing without you

I am low and may never rise again. Bring me the kiss of

Life tell me you love me and that will be a start. I will not

See tomorrow if I do not have your love tonight. Smother me

In flesh, drown me in love and let that be an end to it

Push me aside when I am done and think no more

Of me save for the garland of stars I leave

Behind as a token of my undying

Love for you
