“star-crossed”

 +

today I chased the westering sun

to see him set once more

in a blazing sky and watch him race

to rise on a distant shore

to warm a face in twilight waiting

as he ascends the dawning day

to shed his light on a star-crossed lover

and drive the shadows away

but the racing sun outraced me

and slipped silently out of sight

to leave me in the lonesome shadows

of a star-crossed silent night
