love in the night*

I’m awake in the dark 
when the wind is voiceless 
when the only refrain 
heard again and again 
is “love in the night; love in the night.” 

In a lake of stars, alive 
held by polished water 
I part the firmament 
and the heavens are hazy 
through dewy lashes 

Ringed by rippling halos 
our faces peer out 
and while my ears are submerged 
i sense the words 
whispered though they are
