starry night soliloquy

"it's like a line from one of the most beautiful poems

that I've never read," she said

as he pulled her hair back off of her tear-streaked face

he said, "love is something you can't replace"

as she buried herself in his arms,

he promised to protect her from harm

as he held her close, as to never let her go

she loves him more than he'll ever know

and the whole world wept a tender storm

of passion and the unwillingness to conform

"it's like a line from one of the most beautiful poems

that I've never read," she said
