i was told
although i was the center of my own universe
the stars would not lie
at my feet

i stepped on them anyway

glitter littered
my frozen toes
and broken skin
i knew

walking barefoot through space

hadn’t been such a good
idea as perpetual dusk engulfed me
in one swollen gulp

the glitter spread
to my legs my arms my head
and there i hung in silence

[at the center of my universe]

a star

Definitely the most creative piece I've read so far! The publication was well deserved :) I'm also hoping that some of my work will be published, but I could really use some critique. Would you mind commenting on some of my stuff?

Consider this addage: Shoot for the moon. If you miss, you'll still land among the stars. Really? As far as I know you'll keep drifing, on and on into blackness. But then again. Maybe things are different at the centre of your universe.

This needs no startdust to glitter.
