Your hands were warm, 

intertwined with mine, 

and you were sparkling 

like a new galaxy 

colliding with mine. 


In all of our ashes

and our old ruins,

we were only ever

stars crashing, 

constellations bursting. 


You reached for me

like gentle gravity, 

capturing me like

a shooting star 

in your atmosphere.

"Why do you keep hiding behind your mask,
When even the scars formed by your mistakes
are you own constellations?"

I love space metaphors, and your poem was the best example of one! The language you used was so soothing.
