Descending, You undressed me in the night.
You took my Body and held It against Yours, coaxing me into the silence that I know You love.
I looked up and saw the stars watching, unmindful, the way they watch everything, and thought:
they shall tell the world of Us,
but knew: if they saw they must be speechless.
