see the way the starts glimmered for us
like we were the only ones living, breathing, loving
the air around us.
smell the night flowers’ syrup,
as if they exposed the insides of their buds just to please us,
to appease us.
now go back to that day in your life
when the world wouldn’t stop spinning,
when our lives were just beginning,
when I still loved you,
love me back.
