Poetry

Galaxies and Lovers

This poem is about the word lover. We rarely use it but it still holds so much power. It describes how you sometimes fear to say it aloud because others may judge you for it—might judge who you have chosen your lover to be.

 

Lover

what other word tastes so sweet

on my tongue

 

It tingles with delight

happy to form the word

like the wake of your kiss

your skin is my paradise

I could drown in it

 

You hold entire galaxies inside

with every kiss

you leave stars on my lips

 

I’m sorry

I keep our love in the shadows

when I know

I have your supernovas hanging

from the corners of my mouth
