When we were Stardust

Poetry By: Violet Vane

love is older than time, as old as the stars above us...

Once upon a time,

perhaps in another life,

when we were only stardust...

In that nebula that was

to form our little world,

I was in love with you and

you were in love with me.

We knew nothing of society,

or gender, or relationships.

We were together, just two

wandering souls that connected,

no form and no speech

to impede love,

no previous baggage to carry

upon our metaphysical shoulders,

no images to uphold-

we were just stardust,

so simple and uncomplicated

as stardust.

And I think that I loved you

with all of my soul back then because

sometimes, when I look into your eyes,

something beautiful and rare shines there

and because I can still feel

love's remnants rattling away in my bones

even though our lives brush

together in a strictly platonic way.

And perhaps that is why your

jokes are always reserved for me.

And why you always call me,

despite your feelings towards the phone.

When we meet and your eyes and your smile are

illuminated by a strange wonderful light,

I have to bite my lip not to kiss you.

And as this life is stranger than

any fiction I can dream up,

I never feel completely real

until I am with you.

I think I will always be in love

with the memory of that age old love,

because at our core, we are still stardust
