-dead star light

how do I tell you                        
about the way your very existence                        
makes my soul come alive                        
how all those times I'd died before                        
were worth a chance to find myself lost                        
in your transcendental eyes...                        
                         
what would it take                        
for you to believe                        
that you could trust                        
something you had never known;                        
that I too have felt alone                        
surrounded by everyone                        
who had ever said they loved me                        
and how every hug made me feel                        
like I was a deserter                        
because no one could understand                        
the places I had to go to be myself...                        
                         
within these words both of us have traveled                          
over distances that once seemed too far                        
but would you walk with me a little further              
to see what we discover beyond ourselves                    
like we are light from stars long dead              
in search of a place where our souls can shine...
