stars & stars & stars

May 9, 2020


we are all
stars for moonlight pours 
from the crevices of our eyelids sluicing
helium & hydrogen as we
burn & burn & burn.

we are all
suspended between our
fears, vast oceans of Space dripping 
shards of obsidian down our
throats, stuffing
doubt as we 
wait & wait & wait
for this to
end.

we are all
constellations, melting pots &
points of sizzle-white light
drawn together by
invisible zig-zag 
lines as we
watch & watch & watch
our world
unfold.

we are all
unsure and uncertain,
sputtering worry like 
exhaust, gas slinking through 
our nostrils.

yet

we are all
burning & burning & burning
waiting & waiting & waiting
watching & watching & watching --

we're all
stars in the same
                                                sky.

    Hey there! It was nice to meet you at the community ambassadors meeting.

    This is a brilliant poem. I love that you used some scientific words but still managed to make it such an emotional piece. Your passion for outer space really shows. I also really love your username.
