The stars’ glorious glister
bestrewn the velvet night sky
illuminating striking silhouettes
standing on a dusty earthen floor
trembling from consuming passion
unbeknownst what would betide

In the olden times
a silent pact was made
two souls belonging to each other
fated to meet
but star-crossed nonetheless
haunting each other in their dreams

They have waited centuries and millenniums
imbrued the gentleman’s hands with blood for the right rebirth
only to be thrust into the wrong lifetime
but they’ll seize this wondrous moment
shrugging off their guilt-ridden feelings
and face the repercussions later
