Like Tears From a Star

We made love to fragile. I did not know how fragile you were until I knelt down to drink and you broke pieces in my mouth 

You knew early that I would not stay and that you could not escape 
so you left your pieces in my skin for the journey   

Sometimes I discover your glass splinters with an ache  

and I take them out and make them in to an image of you

in your new life 

wild and free
