aurora borealis

i adore the look
that people get
when they fall in love
as they stare into
each other’s eyes
and see stars

but, with that being said
i do not see the twinkle
of expired light
when i gaze into
your green depths

no, my love, instead
i am mesmerized
fucking hypnotized
by the dancing of the
northern lights
