Fail in Love

She was a traveling soul. The galaxy resting above her nose. I'd sit & stare. Wondering where the stars would go next. Both young & in love I let go. Tracing together swirls of color. The planets all together aligned. Definitely in love with no where to fall. It hurt when she'd look away. I'd lie to myself everytime. A traveling soul with crescent eyes. Where will she go next. Would she bother looking back. I'd genuinely gaze to fail in love. I could feel her forget. Traveling one place to the next. At one time I saw the universe whole. Myself reaching for the telescope. She's nowhere in sight
