Magic

Of crackling love

When the heart burns,
submerged in love, drowning
in the pangs of absence,
your face disperses a rainbow
through the prism of my tear.

I long for the sun
to shine through the cracks
into the abysses;
for the stars to tell me that
distance is as unreal as infinity,
that light years are real
yet unfathomable to our love;
and that which cannot be fathomed
is no more real to us than
bright-eyed pixies, elves and
fairies swishing magic wands.

And yet, I want to be told that,
this is magic — you and me
thrown up into an endless black sky,
only to crackle, sparkle
and revel in each other,
every moment our paths cross,
despite the seemingly endless time.
