the moon is bleeding stars tonight. (i can't help but think of you.) stardust settles into my eyes & i finally realize what you meant when you said that i (glitter)glammed my soul for you. it makes me wonder if you thought that i was trying too hard. maybe i was. i was only 16 after all, & what does a teenager know about love (&life) anyway. the midnight breeze wafts through the open window & caresses my naked limbs. (a final reminder of you & the euphoria that we once shared.)

i let one final sigh escape from my wine drenched lips & i submerse myself into the rose scented water.
