When I kissed you
The Universe felt like it was exploding in our brains
Venus felt like only a step away
And our skin shone with the Sun’s rays
Now we both lie on either side of this vast open space
A black-hole making itself known if we ever try to trespass that zone
Our love is not no more
But too far apart
They never lied when they said the Universe has no start
But this much space as truly brought an end
We romanticised Venus
Not knowing that even though it had diamond topped mountains
It rained Sulphur
The days short, yet heat ridden
But no place like home.
No place to inhabit ourselves and turn into a home.
Ode to my love that burned me beautiful
Your light only ever dimmed by the light of the Moon.
