love transcends everything
|It started with a fallen star. I made a wish in the darkness for a cure to my heartbreak. The falling star was part of a meteor shower, and with it came the answer to my wish. Another streak of light fell burning through the sky to land with a splash in my duck pond.
I ran while the water was still falling back to the earth. I hoped to find a meteorite. I have heard they bring big money on eBay. What I found was priceless, so much more valuable than money. A man stood in the middle of the pond, glowing faintly and steaming as the falling water cooled his skin. I couldn't believe what I saw.
He walked slowly towards me. At a distance, he looked familiar, but the closer he came the harder recognition hit me. I knew that silhouette. The way he walked and moved was beyond familiar. My tears came pouring down. It could not be. He couldn't be. I buried him, what was left of him.
He crossed the farmyard to me. He was naked. I knew every chiseled bulge of muscle on his body. How was this possible. He reached his hand out to caress my cheek, "Love, heaven couldn't hold me. I needed you too bad!" He punctuated his statement with a heart starting kiss.
star, kiss, darkness, heartbreak, and splash
