I encase the spinning galaxies in my hand
Planets in my eyes, nebulaes ebb in my blood
Quasars, constellations, dotting my body, off they fly
The universe in my system, explode and reborn as I die.
Are we humans alone in this mysterious universe?
Or can our simple songs travel across planets and be heard?
Light years away, our verses are delivered
Let’s wait until demise for their voices to be echoed.
I am in shameless limerence with the stars
Their incandescent light, time travel, in an epoch
No longer alive when they reach our skies
An ethereal relationship that cannot be stopped.
Comet, comet, wound ’round my head well
Scorching my eyebrows with your sparking tail
Comet, comet, I bid you farewell
May you not shatter your light and ultimately fail.
You and I can stop the lights from going out tonight
Let’s unfurl open our wings, and the gravity we fight
Taste the cosmos as we waltz across the auroras and the sun
Gliding in the night skies in ineffable bliss and oblivion.
