Orion Chase Sirius

eleven short years
have passed.

I am no longer
the failed astronomer...

I guess I am now the
failed astronomer.

thank you for the
BEST five months of my life.

(I am more afraid
of never seeing your smile again,
than I am of going blind)

these hands
that you once so lovingly admired,
they are now covered
in self-inflicted scars;

You pulled a loose thread
on my heart, girl
& have unwittingly
unraveled the stars.

& when I used to move
inside you,
you'd gently touch my face
& I'd close my eyes;

and in the darkness I'd see
a glimpse of eternity,
an expanding universe
of mystery:

& Orion chase Sirius
your moon-lit skies!!


I close my eyes,
wherever you are
your smile
will always burn inside me...

Like a fucken supernova!!
