A poem I wrote when the boy I loved couldn't love me

I am a creature of sky and menace.

I came into this world a swirl of moons and galaxies, a red star high in the sky.

My skin is not milky white it's milky way.

My finger prints are not finger prints they are constellations, here is Orion's belt, here is cassieopia, here is the little dipper.

There is no heart beating in my chest but there is a sun burning hot inside of me.

Let me remind you that as welcoming as it seems and it will not hesitate to burn you to ash.

I was not birthed, I was molded of clay made from star dust and tears that fall like tiny soldiers.

I may as well be a new Greek goddess, let these mortals bow before me in worship and in fear.

Yet you are mortal.

You are only human, there is no ounce of star dust or galaxy within you, yet I, a soul made of universes that you cannot even fathom, find myself at your feet.

You may as well be made of nebulae and solar systems and the very cosmos that holds me.

I orbit you like Earth orbits the sun, meaning that without you I am nothing, and without me, you still have seven other pretty planets that dance around you.

You cast me into a solar eclipse, shadowing all that I thought I knew.

Suddenly, I am nothing but a black hole, grabbing whatever I can reach and hurling into my chest so that I can pretend I don't crave you.

If you can set off a supernova in my chest with only a glance, what could you do if you loved me?

Destruction would fall upon the very space time continuum, it would be ripped apart at its seams and humanity would crumble.

I will observe from a distance lest the heat of my thousand stars attract you to the certain doom that would be our love.

Maybe, just maybe, some planets are better left unexplored.
