“Someone I loved once gave me a box full of darkness. It took me years to understand that this too, was a gift.”

― Mary Oliver

Between the stars helps me to fathom
how dark her world is
but it’s like not
as I have not remembered
the stars that lit our past:
and as we fly deeper into the
recesses of this inky black bowl
littered with this glitter (love)
I can’t find anything that resembles her more
than this stark, white
moon, a hanging marble
until I realize,
I am her lunar eclipse
creating this void?
or filling her black and blue sky
with sunlight, liquid color
to block out the
memories (bruises)
