she held constellations within her eyes and a darkness in her soul.
it should have been a warning,
but she gave off warmth through her laughter that i heard across the room.
it drew me to her,
like the pull of gravity-too strong to resist.
and when i got to her i was among the stars.
and when we touched i fed off her light,
glowing-brighter than id ever shined.
but then her touch burned and words that once felt like light lit me on fire.
and when we collided she enveloped me,
like gas-smothering me.
until i was me no longer
until my very makeup was fundamentally different.
then she left me.
and without her light i was dim.
but a flicker of what might have been sat within me waiting for me to wake up and find that she did not take the parts of me that glowed my own light.
so off she went.
and i stayed to create my own galaxy.
and off she went,
off to go break more hearts,
and give birth to new stars
