into the valley of dying stars

Work Text:

He feels the stars too close. Boundless light, pushing in on him, erasing the boundaries between them. The streaking meteor of her body colliding with his. He floats down to rest underneath her. Her eyes are cloudless, drifting in the silent space between them. She gravitates to him uneasily. He counts the constellations in the curves of her body, imaginary threads drawn between them. She kisses him; flickering heat envelops his body. Terrified, he treads in the unknown.
