A star in your smile; the cosmos entwined
In your hazel locks; a birth of a nebula
On your belly button; when I tickle your back,
A supernova, an explosion so bright, it can be seen
For millions upon millions of miles; a galaxy resting,
Dangling, dripping from your lips; star by star, sun by sun
They fall, like tears of fire and passion; this, my love, this
Is how I see you; you are the universe to me; you are the
Whole world, my whole world; everything that can or will ever be
Rests in the creases of your palms and on the lashes of your eyes.
Like a black hole, you suck me in, but instead of void, I find nothing
But love and love and endless, endless love. One day may you
Understand the depths of my love for you; like the blue flame of
A baby star, it will burn for billions and billions of years, and once
The last flame flickers, it will implode on itself, only making, once again,
Another black hole, filled with the ceaselessness of your love; undying,
Unending, unwavering; filled to the brim until it cannot hold it anymore
When, suddenly, it explodes, all of it, your love for all of the heavens of
Space to dip its insolent fingers into; insolent of your love, of you, but alas
It gets a taste of what I have come to know as you; my dearest, my preciousness,
My treasure, my passion, my all, my universe.
How I will live without your smile, or your hands, or the way
You say my name, and stare in awe of appreciation to me,
(something no one has done for me before) is a question that begs
An answer I cannot give. How can I live with no sun, no stars, no nebulae,
No world entire? All gone. A last kiss to foundation of my heart.
Everything you are to me, my love, is something I can only return
With the words on my lips, and the kisses I give to you.
Every kiss; a sun. Every embrace; a world. Every, “I love you;”
An explosion of time and space and love. Though, in fact, they
Are all the same to me. Just as every sunrise is really you telling me
To wake up, and how much you love me, just as every moonrise is you
Telling me how deeply you care, and to close my eyes, and dream about
You, as I do every night and every day, for whether I sleep or am awake,
When with you, it is nothing short of the best dream I could dream.
No other words can I say to you, no other meanings,
Or letters, or poems can express the vastness of my love, far
Outreaching the boundaries of an endless universe, far outlying the
Farthest points of eternity; I love you now, I love you at every sunrise
And sunset, I love you then, I love you in times when I cannot grasp the
Totality of my love for you for it is too much for any man, let alone myself
To grasp. With everything I am, I love you.
