“Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend.” -Martin Luther King, Jr.

A sky full of stars,

You opened my mind to the universe.

My only source of gravity,

Finding the constellations of my soul.


Bringing Mercury to Neptune,

You thawed the ice inside of me.

A comet crashing into my world;

Developing my life into one new.


Caught up in a Black Hole,

Burning out your life died.

‘Goldilocks’ mitigated into the dead zone

Killing out my happiness and my pride.
