lovely, lovely, lovely

by Charlotte Amelia

in the dark, the fields stretch on forever
and the sky is too close too faraway all at once
the moon gives me enough pale light to see your face
and i watch you as you pick out individual stars
your eyes wide and your lips slightly parted
your body shaking slightly in the cold of the night
i stand beside you and i make a harsh promise
to make every moment with you as beautiful as this one
to never see you cry –
if we stand here ’til sunrise,
i know i’ll still love you just as much
when the soft pinks and violent reds change your features
still beautiful, effortless, defying description
you are lovely, lovely, lovely
and i will whisper it to you as you sleep
for as long as it takes for you to believe it
