Silent on dark wings
  Night glides across half-lit sky
   Scaring off the sun
  tree outlines emerge
   black and flat against deep twilight
    branches grab at stars

his eyes are deceptive
  Shifting in dim light
   Brown, green, then golden
    molten amber
      Luminous, liquid

pale skin in darkness
  his imperfections melt away
    dissolved by moonlight

  my gold hair mingles with his brown
    tangled companionably

but it is time to go

  I drive away
    leave a tiny bit of my soul behind
  just in case he needs it
