a star is missing
from that part of the sky where
her dreams used to live

she becomes the void
in space which gives shape to the
matter of his life

she tries to retrieve
that which she cut away while
carving out her life

the clamor of her
monkey mind is drowning out
her heart’s desire

he opened the door
to her fortified heart and
set of an alarm

though he’s perfectly
imperfect she tried to love
him to perfection
