mercury, planet, and art image stars, blue, and sky image stars, overlay, and constellation image love, art, and kiss image

I stand at the edge of humanity
Staring at the sky like a bird on a perch
The darkness winks with whimsy
The wind whispers with wishing
It calls me like a promise

If only I could leap into the abyss
And ride a boat into the milky way
I'd swim in a sea of starlight
I'd sail through collections of comets

The night would turn my skin to silk
And the sky would wash your touch away
The memory of you would be replaced with moonlight
And my tears would fall to the earth

Like stars falling from grace
