Saturn's Rings

By Anaelle

I dreamed we danced on Saturn’s rights last night
Our arms tightly around each other
And our bodies close
While the stars fell one by one around us
Creating beautiful rainbows of stardust
Jupiter and its 16 moons hid the sun from us
Casting a shadow that stretched across the universe
And next to us Neptune glided by
Majestically blue Neptune
With its tiny rings made of diamonds and pearls
The comets sang of our love
As bards would sing of heroes
We danced alone in this heaven of ours
To the sweet sound of the stars and comets drifting by
And your warmth kept the chill away
In this vast empty stretch of space
Where gods comes to die
And heroes gain their immortality
Your soft breath in my ear
Was the only thing I could hear
The only thing I wanted to hear
And your soft lips on my neck
Along with the gentle raising and falling of your chest
In this timeless moment with you
Dancing on Saturn’s rings

I dreamed we danced on Saturn’s rings last night
Her moons passing by every now and then
The Milky Way winding itself a path
Across the horizon of space
Everything was peacefully held in place
By nothing but emptiness
But me, I felt whole and complete
With your body pressed so close to mine
I wanted to melt into you
Be absorbed by you
Think your thoughts
And never be apart from you again
But I remained content to just hold you
And be held by you
Just as the planets circle endlessly around the sun
Never straying from the path
We never uttered a word in this dream
The singing comets, with their glowing tails
Said everything for us
And the stars continued to fall – stardust rainbows
And Jupiter continued to watch us
Ever present, ever still
And Neptune glided by again
In this timeless moment with you
Dancing on Saturn’s rings
