a walking eclipse you hurt my eyes
until they're splitting from the sides
i only know you from afar
but to know you at all is to know you by heart

every neuron alights in waves
and every dormant cell awakes

you make the planets all align
you make the stars lose their shine
i only know you from afar
but to know you at all is to know you by heart
