I see her standing lightly, almost floating in the air
She is surrounded by starry lights, but not quite hidden by their glare
She is a glittering, diamond angel; her skin is like soft and cool
Her touch is peace, her smile calm, and her eyes are like deep pools
There was a time when every night I’d look up at the stars
I would stand there in the dark and feel, reopening, old scars
The stars were where I had to go to escape this place where I’m entombed
Reality; my prison, and without stars I would be doomed
Doomed to forever stay in a world that I’m not of
And so I waited for the day when I could touch those stars above
But when I look in her eyes I don’t need those lights away so far
When I am with her, I can escape; she became my stars
I touch her face, and she my hand, and thus I fall into her gaze
We close our eyes as time slows down, my surroundings but a haze
We lean close, she seems so still, and just before we kiss
I feel her cheek fade from my hand, and at once my insides twist
I keep shut my eyes, I already know, she was never really there
Still, I remember things about her, like the softness of her hair
Haunted by memories that are not real; a ghost that speaks no words
She just smiles as I try to touch her, but the visage only blurs
Who she is I cannot say and, in truth, it does not matter
She was my life, my diamond angel, and without her my life is shattered
And so I wait until the day when I, her ethereal beauty, find
And reach for the ghost of my diamond angel, who will vanish every time.
