Star-Drenched Eyes

No longer can I travel through
Boundless time and infinite space
To gaze upon your handsome face

So I have imagined and created
A fiery orange planet in your image
Orbiting in an impetuous sky

When my aloneness becomes unbearable
And I long for your comforting embrace
I gaze up high with star-drenched eyes

And basking in your luminous face,
I remember

  2. Oh, you have expressed the voice of the image so well…The idea of what the mind creates to cope with loneliness.

  3. This is how many separated lovers must feel at the moment, Linda. I love the image of a ‘fiery orange planet… Orbiting in an impetuous sky’.
