I thought I needed the sunsets:

that firework show in the clouds, 

slowly transforming into an entire absence of light,

until the once festive carnival with merry carousels 

turns into a gloomy neighborhood,

with only some confetti 

sprinkling through house windows,

and a couple of fireflies

spreading their wings up in the dark sky.

 

I thought I needed the sunrises,

so naive and fragile -

knowing their symphonies will come to a soft diminuendo,

and the faded, mysterious pastels

will burn out into a bright light;

no more a tender, eloquent touch,

but a bland, one-shade canvas

which shines the same for everyone.

 

I thought I needed the sky

in all its glory,

until that one glance 

straight into your eyes -

 

and what I saw was every sunset

and every sunrise,

the rivers that flow through my veins

carrying stardust our bodies are made of,

I heard the thunders of your heartbeats,

saw the skylines of your tendons -

 

and somehow -

you saw it in me, too,

when you looked into my eyes.
