Rivers of stars
Filigree of light
Reflected upon the silver lake.
I met you on a star-crossed path.
Dark hair and hooded eyes
Skin as pale as the moon
You came to me with an undercurrent
Glossed over by your warrior armour.
Yet planets apart.
You are from Pluto
And I Mintaka.
Water sylphs turn a cheek
Blushing cheeks warmed by our love.
But guilt swoops in on you
An ancestral guilt that lives deep within your core.
Our souls need to break free
And so even our hands cannot be bound together any longer than this.
At the moment when you held me
When we floated through the Milky Way
My crown sparkling against your heart
We promised each other
We shall meet again
In another life on Earth.
And I shall remember you
Like a soul remembers a missing part.
And we shall be together
I know I have a past life as a Mintakan. I can see a filigree line linking a past of a city gone to ruins with the lost world of Mintaka. On Earth I know I also once lived a life as a mermaid 🧜♀️
