The Universe Within Me

Sally Elhousieny

 

Stars die in fiery glory
He says I destroy him
The core shrinks and relights while the outer layers expand
I don’t see how

The core relights over and over until iron is made

He says I destroy him

I don’t see how

The iron core the collapses while the outer layers expand

The core relights over and over until iron is made

I have a solid grip on his heart

The iron core then collapses and the outer layers explode

He’s blinding me with his passion

I have a solid grip on his heart

If the core survives it becomes one of two things,

He’s blinding me with his passion

A star that emits radio heart beats or a black hole

If the core survives it becomes one of two things,

We are two hearts that beat as one, or so he says

A star that emits radio heartbeats or a black hole

He used me to fill a gap in his heart while my sadness became a void

We are two hearts that beat as one, or so he says

The faster pulsars spin, the faster the heart beats get

He used me to fill a gap in his heart while my sadness became a void

The threshold of gravity and light, also the center of our milky way

The faster pulsars spin, the faster the heartbeats get
I was his whole universe
The threshold of gravity and light, also the center of our milky way
And to me he was a dying star
