We used to be

two eyes burning brilliantly,

resplendent and painfully bright,

in the moonless visage of the heavens,

recklessly searing

through the dark spaces of morning

into the sable pitch of gaping night.

But

when things

radiate as torridly--

as passionately

as you and I--

Fuel reserves, inevitably,

run dry.
