Love Letters to a Decaying Orbit

By Malice In Wonderland


burning brightly
in the midst

awe inspiring and beautiful
you create your own pull
inciting orbit
pulsing dangerously within

our hands
sparked a solarflare sunrise
blistering blackhole uncertainties
rolling through the dark matter that winds the paths of infinity

We became as missiles
fiery and insolant in our stubbornness
we fell from the heavens as meteors 
starbound and bleeding

but you were my sky
time upon time ago
or was it just a blink, 
or a whisper in the cold black light
of space

winding our finger tips into galaxies
threading the cosmos through your lashes
quivering like my lower lip
as I 
bite back so many wishes and theories
that my constellation coronaries
seems to be drifting apart

 while I search for you

a vortex
among the pagan gods of yesteryears 
yet to come
if we slipped
just two timestreams to the left
would our souls meld into something beautiful?


would our minds still taunt us
supernovas and dying suns
your starlight eyes
are fading
and my cosmos are unravelling from your eyelashes
but hanging 
by a thread

as our sunspot emotions
write in ardous indescision unstable and incapable
of becoming
anymore than

just two anomalies
entwined and unnerved
dismayed by the shockwaves
they create.

  • A former member wrote: if my "writers block" was half as good... this brings to my mind that "yesterdays for mice and gods"... that we become the ultimate, as if we are not already... decay always springs new life and this write feels like the source of that echo... Scholar

  • A former member wrote: Very good poem. Brilliant and inspiring. Thank you Scholar
