Poetic Attempt || Twelve

in the midst of our own unraveling
we found each other
and although our collision was fleeting
our lives are entangled indefinitely
into a chaotic tapestry
with a length that can rival
the limits of our universe
with stories transcending
the nature of time and space
its gravity unparalleled
but only felt
between the two of us

in the midst of our own unraveling
we found each other
and while your star has long disappeared
my galaxy continues to thrive
and overflow with bursts of life
stretching within itself
the same way air fills up my lungs
contracting and expanding
in time with the rise and fall of each breath
and because of your star
i learned to draw
new constellations by hand
