It happened so quiet,

so silent

the way the light left your eyes

Your arms loosened,
and fell dry
into my lap.
Head hunched over on my shoulders,
the desperate pulse
and your heart
silent

One,
two,
your blood and spirit dripped onto the plateau
down to the riverbank I wanted to take you
with me,
But the moon wanted you back,

So you became Luna,
And I
Naiad,
watching gracefully, you dancing with stars in the sky.
