Star Crossed

Infinity could never hold us
you see, we don't belong to today
and we don't belong to yesterday-
we belong to a fragile, uncertain tomorrow
that could shatter at any moment,
and without a warning, our forever would disappear-
just as surely as stars fade into the dawn-
turning our memories to dust all around us,
obliterating the lives we knew.
We'll hold each other high
remembering half-forgotten moments
when we dreamed so hopefully of a future
where we'd be together at long last-
united at the sunset as the stars fell for us,
with whispered words and fumbled touches,
we'd lay together
exchanging those last few seconds of shared innocence
for a joy we'd never known.
