Venus Rising


​It was a sign 

Venus and the Moon

a match made in heaven

My naive heart believed
in the power of stars

But your Moon waxed
and waned
never constant

And my Venus never rose

Now my heart is stronger

It waits for neither moon nor sun
Nor all the planets in the skies

Lit by the fires of
strength
suffering
spirit

My Venus rises
higher
every day
never again
to set
