Objects in Mirror

all these years
of too late
come together as if time
yields around us
like some wish.

you said my kiss tastes
like new
but if you close your eyes
you'd know it was me.
objects in mirror are closer
than they appear.

checking my lips
in the rear view
even the rain seems
much closer.
i remember when i was told
the sun is just a star.

birds at 4am remember you
they are singing me
to sleep
i have waited
another day
all nights.
