you're a real jewel to me

the secrets embedded in your skin;
tattooed underneath your flesh,
I can see them
like shards of seaglass dangled before the sun
you're splayed out on the beach
melting with the starfish
five fingers stretched out flat
two starfish of your own
your sweat sinks into the sand

I'm your moon ship,
sailing in from the galaxy
stars strung around my wrists like bracelets
let me let down my anchor for you
stop my endless searching
I would crash onto the sand
s t a r struck; earth baby come down
sienna eyes wide open,
looking at the treasure I've landed upon

grasping you in my so cold
(so called) fingers, I could
make you apart of my world
my little secret treasure

we could surf on stars and seashells alike
