My Eternal Universe This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

And I could have held your fingertips,
like stars,
in my palm for hours.
And I could have stood mesmerized for years
by your pupils dilating,
like black holes,
sucking in my soul.
And I could have watched your smile,
as bright and explosive as a supernova,
for a millennium.
And I could have waited forever,
for your heart
like the moon,
filling me with light
and then leaving me in the dark.

I honestly wanted to cry while reading this. What beautiful imagery you used. So many people would have taken years to find the right words to describe this feeling. You are a true artist of words. Keep writing.
