The Sun Reigns

littleworlds
Pearls of reflections
Of refracted visions
Of distant worlds
Of what never was
Cascade down
Spinning in rotation
In orbital trajectories;
The birth of a new solar system;
In explosions;
You constantly appeared.

I recall those days
I lay in wait
For you to rise.
Moments of hysteria;
Screaming
In the confines of my mind
As raging rivers shook
Unmitigated parched thirst.

How I fell in love
So deeply.

I gave up so much.
So many things I believed I wouldn’t
Just to make her my reality.
Only god knows
What else I’d give up
While the sun reigns
In gravitation.

Prismatic Glass Parts

Step through this doorway
And you’ll find me waiting there.
Promises made
But are not fulfilled.
You didn’t know her like I did,
This argument rises
In solitary confinement
Tainted with stains
As black veins separate
Prismatic glass parts.
Dark matter lines
Coloured worlds
Of yearnings
Love, deftly tracing
This shattered illusion.
They separate slowly
Rotating, revealing,
Dispersing in microgravity.

But eventually they’ll
Reach the surface
With no force to
Keep them in orbit.
They’ll fall like rockets,
Fragments will shatter
Upon contact,
Unless they burn up first.
