Cosmic Things

I have fallen in love
with far too many
beautiful things – cosmic things
like the way the sun
shines on dying stars,
and how it eclipses
the wishes of forgotten souls.
I have fallen in love
with the wildest beasts,
the ones that howl
beneath full blue moons,
bursting as they wait
to watch you unbuckle my wishes
from Orion’s Belt.
I have fallen in love
with the velvety touch
of the milkiest ways,
and I dread the day when
I wake up and am left
with nothing but the tragic
crash of a love born
only in this world.
