Moon above a tree

I liken you to a lovely shade of the heavens
Like the colors of a far off galaxy.
Like planets painted by the hand of God
And the flames of its sun.
I liken your smile to worlds on fire
In the distant skies of nebulous beauty.
Like stars racing and burning in the heavenlies.
Your gazes like the moon in full.
The looks in your eyes captivating like the moons of Jupiter.
Intensity, their gravity strongly pulls me in.
My thoughts gravitate to the look in your eyes.
They seem to draw me in those brief moments.
The softness of your voice brings me down to Earth
Under its dark branches and gentle rivers.
