as something that might come out tonight

can you see the stars as if you could hold them
as if they were the sparks of frost
falling from your breath
and you could catch them with your hand
can you see them as i see you
as a metaphor
as something that might come out tonight
depending on the weather
as something that pretends to be so close
while being so far away
or maybe not even there at all
i can see the stars out tonight
i can see myself in the sliding glass door
there is a shape in the reflection
behind me and to the left
it is more an absence than a presence
but it is still a ghost
