Where the Stars Burn

by Dziude

A gift for someone, inspired by this pairing...
You can decide whose POV it is from.
Neelix & Chickpea read this and I love them dearly.

I have loved you
In wild, secret places,
In the dark, cold spaces
Where the stars burn.

I have loved you
In the quiet gloaming,
Allowing word nor kiss
To pass my lips.

I have loved you
In the roar of battle,
That each bitter moment
Would be your end.

I have loved you
Without hope or wisdom,
Of what all reason said
Could never be.

I have loved you
Breathless in the sunrise,
As you, trembling, placed
Your hand in mine.
