Faded blues

Gone again, you've left with the sun,
my run away muse, my half-written poem.  
The sky is such a devastating shade of blue
and so is the moon when I open my eyes.
 
Your ardent soul still sings  
the music of an endless age
and I dance to the sound of it,  
divine upon the tongues of leaves.
 
When all that shines has faded,  
and my tears for you become the stars,
I will imagine my heart to be  
the only living thing among them.  
 
My lover, my imperfection, my bluest desire,  
how desperately I've searched  
for that last, torrid line...
 
But all I found was you:
the most beautiful love poem I've never written
