“ I’m more ancient than you. Someday, I will engulf the solar system. What was and what will be are meaningless. Meanwhile, you should wonder: are you just a two-headed pile of meat on a crash course with the cosmic dump? Or do you contain the soul memory of a million dead stars? ”
“ Split the atom’s heart, and low Within it thou wilt find a Sun. ”
“ And the Sun on my shoulders brings,
because of its perfect warmth,
the feeling that I wear great wings
while stepping along the Earth. ”
“ I said to the night,
“If you are in love with the Moon,
it is because you never stay for long.”
The night turned to me and said,
“It is not my fault. I never see the Sun,
how can I know that love is endless? ”
“ Every star may be a Sun to someone. ”
I could swear to you
that the heat of the burning
Sun lives in my chest.
Catching beams of sunlight
in my palms
as they roll in through the window.
Comfort from a stranger
I’ve never met.
He’s traveled so far from home
to hold my hands,
to warm my skin,
to show me
the only consistency in life
is the reassurance
of a new day.
