Tonight the sun set so quick
and suddenly the night sky
was packed with stars.
But I couldn’t wait for long
as I knew that back inside the house
was your mouth
packed full of teeth
white and waiting for my kiss
to jump start your heart
and begin the day again.

And so, with a final sigh,
I parted the dawn curtains
and reached up into
the warmth of the morning.

    The ending is almost Simic-esque. Something about the imagery being haunting, and well-placed…

    Anyway, I liked the sequence with the sky and the teeth. Well done.

    These are things I stress over.
    To spend hours trying to make it sound like it just came out of my brain.
