From Here
unknown

Oh, but the stars are melting
 1
their colors snap wherever I step
 2
and those tall tangled skeletons
 3
break the sky into tiny sections.
 4
I want to know why you look so long
 5
at the sky, where do you go
 6
when you breathe so deep that my
 7
heart stretches with you. I can't
 8
put the copper crumbs in my palm
 9
back together.
 10
Holding so tight to fragile things,
 11
beautiful things
 12
so say is why you memorize
 13
a hue
 14
when both the sun and the trees
 15
are melting
 16
crumbling
 17
fading over and through you.
