The Starry Heights

from by Luke Janela



Your candle is burning bright
there's a soft wind tonight
your sorrow is just a dare
you're alright

You're a dancer that's frozen in flight
bathed in obscenely golden light
a current flows through you with force
your river is wild

Did I Queen you?
Do I kneel to you?
I saw your light,
you needed proof.

Your heiress
The starry heights
we shared in.

I'm calling now out of thin air,
the siren's song, beware
the melody is dusty wine,
a star's flair.

Startled belief in time
the silence of my mind
sorrow is just a dare
a blind mime.

Did I dream you?
Or receive you?
I seem to be
between truths.

The heiress apparent,
the starry heights
we shared in.
