One step away at a time,
Threaded constellations of your smile,
For years, my heart veins tried telling you,
That it hurts when the lips don’t move,
One step away at a time.
Now that you laugh,
And I can’t feel a thing in my core,
I guess I have walked away from the stars.
Only trees can talk off time,
They stay with me in these dimensions,
Where smiles are immaterial lies.
