Space, Love

On our backs

Looking up at the stars

You feel overwhelmed


Space does that to you


“I feel so small.”

“You’re big to me.”

“I’m a speck. I’m less than a speck.”


I want to reassure you

As gravity holds us to a precious planet

The perfect distance from the sun


“The electrons don’t worry about us.

They just keep doing their job. Spinning.”

You take my hand

And your breathing slows

“It’s too much.”
