some nights you will feel like a galaxy

and then some nights

you will feel so impeccably small

like an atom untethered in the cosmos

~ i wish so badly that i could be the first one forever

You say the stars are too far away,

And for me to look lower,

But let me tell you the story of a girl,

Who never believed what people told her.

She was born bathed in sunlight,

With sparks  in her eyes and dots on her skin,

She was fearless and brave,

With a world within.

She made a rocket out of paper,

With words dribbled in black ink,

Shooting the stars a message,

“I’m starting to care what people think.”

She was growing up and learning,

And hearing the whispers in the hall,

The stars peered down in pity,

“I don’t belong in this world at all.”

So one day she decided,

She would disappear from it,

And so she sunk into the stars,

To hopefully forget.

I’m not the same girl,

That I was once was,

Speaking stardust,

And befriending supernovas.


I’ve lost my way,

Admist the cosmos,

Of sparkling light,

And endless shadows.


One thing is another,

And I am not me,

Listening to the stars whisper,

How great I will be.


Of course I feel too much,

I’m a universe of supernovas,

And not a plain unfeeling star,

Like and you and what I once was.

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,


And galaxies shifted,

The moment I fell in love with you,


And they decided that we,

Were never going to be.
