Petals on her neck

By Leith Plunkett

She wears petals on her neck
a silhouette of perfection
catching moonlight in the corner of her eyes

Her tears hidden by the rain
the same colour as the sparkle
placed on her finger

Somewhere above
crimson leaves flutter like heartbeats
from dreamy branches
With their lips delicately pressed

He whispered

We will still be holding hands
when we take our place
as glitter
amongst the stars
