The call of the void. If you want to feel it, go outside in the dead of winter. Hold your partner's hand and look up.

Why is it, looking at the stars
makes you reach for a hand to hold?

I think it’s that feeling you get,
that riptide pull at your bones,

like if you don’t find something,
someone, to hold onto,

you might float away
in a sequined ocean,

never to be seen again,
carefree and quite happy

to be so
perfectly lost.
