Don’t go
I’ll watch you
A moonslice of hope and a bucket of love
As I gaze into the eyes of its presence I see the stars we once shared
and the galaxy we lost
New is a black hole
burned onto my heart
never will it go into the essence of nothing
its  hand on my cheek
a crystal sadness from all the stardust of us
into my slivered down sunshine
i will see you again but i shall never meet you
the black hole is open
and ready for me 
the stars are now stardust
my galaxy gone
burning flames of misery’s creation
as it leaves me
the dust that our galaxy once was
changing into something magnificent
a new star born
burned onto me beautifully
made with
a moonslice of hope and a bucket of love

I am 13 years old. I was inspired to write this after watching the stars.
