​I burned for you
until I became smoke
and vanished
on the winds
that carried me
to the heavens
where I saw
brilliant stars
twinkling in
a deep purple sea
of infinite night.
They reminded me
of your eyes,
where I saw myself
sparkling with mirth,
as you giggled,
the sound of magic
that still echoes
in my dreams,
in my heart,
in my spirit.
