Night Sky Conservatory

Do you remember the night sky conservatory?
The time we picked the lock at the gate
Snuck in after dark?
So innocent we felt like criminals.

Little did we know we were stealing
Each other's hearts.

Do you remember the blanket I spread out
Beneath the stars that slowly revealed themselves
One constellation at a time?
Learning that darkness and light
Can really coexist quite beautifully,
Each gaining significance from the other.

Do you remember the bats 
Scattering their silhouettes 
Across our unhindered gaze?

Do you remember the creature
Moving not far away?
Do you wonder as I do,
If it was our budding affection manifest
To warn us we were falling?

Do you remember when you said,
“That was my first kiss”
And your very words
Altered my body chemistry?

Do you remember from all the years gone by
Amidst the tangled breaths and foggy windows,
All the vapours of pleasure
Turning into solid child?

How could I not believe in magic?
When what I’ve known with you
Is the opposite of tragic.
