sea meets sky ii

I. We are set alight, you and I, in the blinding clinical reflection of neon lights from the roadside. The sky and the sea never meet this far out.
II. We’re lying on your bed and you’re kind of crazy and I’m kind of awkward but that’s okay. I’m telling you about the way blood flows to the heart. You’re telling me about silk and cotton and money and hate.
III. I smile into your kiss.
IV. Good fortune never came easily to me but it is tangible now. Starlit skies and moonstruck horizons haven’t given me the fairy-lit happiness the motorway you live by has, and it is now that I realise you are the only person I’ve ever known who could make me see streetlamps like they were shooting stars.
