one day, i want to find a place
with perfect dark sky conditions
(astronomy…
you have done me in)
but really,
the prospect of looking upwards
and being able to see
thousands upon thousands
of glorious glowing stars,
almost as though the heavens
were somehow brought down to earth –
a religious experience.
tangible.

the way it feels when
you hold me so tight
and somehow fill the room with stars.
just like that.
