Daydreaming and procrastinating more than is healthy.

Writer's block and sleep deprivation are my constant companions.

in the cold, dark embrace of the night:

          i see a million constellations dancing
          in your cryptic irises
            [andromeda, cassiopeia, lyra]
          when you look up at the heavens
     do you see the gods laughing at us?

          i taste a thousand supernovae blazing
          within your sugar-laced lips
            [big stars always die out sooner]
          when you press them against mine
     do you feel them burning too? 

          i feel waves of asteroids orbiting
          your honeysuckle-stained fingers
            [remnants of the big big bang]
          when you thread them through my hair
     do you know,
         do you,


constellation, wave, honeysuckle

    This is OUTSTANDING! I personally love pieces about space, especially ones that incorporate space and constellations. Your dice rolls sound so aesthetically pleasing and make up for a great piece. I entered prompt three and got smog, pistol and dagger which was really hard to incorporate but was fun to link together. Break a leg for the comp!

    I’m stunned! I tried writing a space themed poem recently but it’s nothing compared to this. ‘when you look up at the heavens/do you see the gods laughing at us?’ This sentence is so sad and so powerful. Good luck!

    I feel like I'm genuinely not a good enough writer to compliment this piece, but I am blown away by how well you've used the words you got.
