Poetry Wednesday – You Are

Neutron StarYou are my sun and my moon

All the stars in the heavens wish they were you

The stars try to match your light

They burn and burn and burn bright

Then POP! supernova sparkle in the sky

They die

Turning inward

Becoming black holes

Pulling the universe into themselves

Becoming destroyers of worlds

You burn steady

Your glow and inner light never fading

Strong, warm ever reaching to take in me and my universe

Not to destroy

To protect and love and lift me up

To shine on me and all good things

You are my sun and my moon

All the stars in the heavens wish they were you
