Stardust

He is a black hole
consuming me
under the moonlit
wakefulness of dreams,
touching and colliding
on hungry, breathless
little kisses, filling the
sky with all the love
I carry, until I am nothing
but stardust and
faded suns.

Solemn

You have twisted yourself around

the greatest luck on our side,
but I promise, I will keep loving
you like this. Wear my words, like
a vow like a promise on your skin,
I will keep loving you like this.

Maybe because of this my soul is ten times older than my chronological age, and it just wants to fucking rest already. It scares me a little. But maybe that doesn’t mean I’m not okay.

P. S. It’s funny how when I posted this in instagram, I got messages saying I should not be a loner. There’s a big difference between being alone and being lonely.

And when people finally notice you, they won’t recognize you or know your name, but damn they will feel you. They will fall in love with your uniqueness and finally see the beautiful ambiguity that you are.
