Star Boy

You were crafted in the stars,

And given a luminescent glow,

But even if I love you,

I can’t join you in the stars you know.

 

While you were crafted out of stardust,

And figments of the moon,

I was crafted out of earth,

And of friendship ended too soon.

 

Star boy I am an earthling,

As mortal as can be,

So while you are drifting with meteors,

Please remember me.

 

I know I might not be born on Saturn,

Or a distant star,

But please believe that I can’t return.

 

The lack of oxygen is crushing my heart,

And homesickness is curling up in my ribcage,

But know that I will think of you while we are apart.

 

I’m sorry star boy,

That I couldn’t stay forever in the stars,

So remember me,

While walking over Mars.

 

You were a universal thing,

And I was trapped in the atmosphere,

So the best I can do is to ask you,

Not to forget me while I’m here.

 

Maybe one day I’ll join you,

In the indigo sea,

But until that day,

Remember me in the billions of galaxies.

 

 

 

Maybe you were not the one for me.

 

Maybe the cosmos,

Stars,

And galaxies shifted,

The moment I fell in love with you,

 

And they decided that we,

Were never going to be.

 

I’ve heard that once,

Every atom in bodies,

Was part of a star,

So my beautiful darling,

You are not just leaving,

You are going home.

Star Boy

Oh, Star Boy,

I miss you.

 

You use to call me “dearling,”

And laugh softly,

As you said,

“Endless space and oblivion are the only fears I have.”

 

But oh Star Boy,

You don’t seem to understand,

That there is so much more to this world,

Then the simple fears you had.

 

My fears anchored me to this earth,

While you went bounding about in the stars,

And so I hope when someone meets you next,

You say while smiling softly,

“I fear oblivion, endless space and losing people.”

 

Because by golly you lost me,

Up in the galaxies.

 

He thought I was a simple star,

Only one among billions,

And not even the brightest.

 

He saw another star,

In a different galaxy,

So he went away.

 

I wept so hard,

That the very  moon,

Felt sorry for me,

So she whispered,

“Explode, darling. Don’t keep the pain,

Inside.”

 

I exploded in a mess of color,

Stardust, and rocks.

 

My color flickered across the galaxies,

And he saw.

 

Oh star boy,

Why did you think,

That I was a simply a star?

 

I was so much more than that,

And you never believed,

So don’t leave your bright star,

In that far off galaxy,

Because I am fine,

Without you,

As a supernova.

 

 

Please tell your friends,

About the girl,

Who made you realize,

That the universe,

Can seem small,

Compared to the depth,

Of her soul,

And the love,

She had for you.

Because she deserves that,

Instead of a goodbye text.
