I woke up and felt
an elusive growth
inside of me.
Something is growing wings,
wanting to fly with joy.
I wrapped my arms around my own body,
for I am still scared
than this pain
And in a garden of thorns,
you are the only rose I see.
I remember the first time I saw him.
His radiance stole the breath from my lungs,
as if I was outside the atmosphere.
I got lost exploring the galaxies of his eyes,
and I got pulled into his pupils
like a pair of black holes.
His smile revealed a cluster of bright stars.
I wanted to explore his body,
as if he was the surface of Mars.
His laughter caused a supernova in my heart,
the strength of his gravity could tear me apart.
We danced and orbited each other all night,
then we went home to learn about the Big Bang.
turns my black bitter coffee
into a memory of you
