Heart Shaped


artificial suns slant across your skin

turning it colors it never has been

showing your body clothed only in light


I watch you tentatively standing there

your desire on hold and your heart laid bare

when it's only you who is clothed in light


wearing these thin bright clothes with simple grace

the fit is right, there's a smile on your face

and you forget you're clothed only in light


keeping my focus on plans of my own

i ignore how boldly your heart is shown

i think you'll always be clothed in light


believing more and more in love it seems

much later I'll wonder about my dreams

and why I left you alone, clothed in light
