Look up.
Isn’t it beautiful?
Mysterious?
Lonely…
It’s nothing and everything at the same time
A big black dome of emptiness scattered with dust
As well as all of time and space

Close your eyes...
Now open them

Point to the first star you see
That’s where we’ll fly to
We’ll go there together
That blemish on the dark veil of nothing and everything
And we’ll go there
One day.

I like how you wrote "that blemish on the dark veil of nothing and everything" because it is really discripive and helps the reader picture the stars in the dark, night sky. I found this poem to be a very hopeful one, since it talked about dreams and goals. Great job!

Beautifully simplistic and I love your comparison of stars to dust. Good job!
