    Globular clusters
    gravitational pull
    that moved me
    into concentrations
    bound by
    an illumination
    well beyond the limits
    of the ordinary sky

    Shadows that speak
    directly to the Milky Way
    said you're temporarily
    leaving me, going to
    leave here today...

    The galaxy held you
    near to her breast
    and gave you life
    even as you said
    it was time and that
    you needed a short
    rest
    By contrast you have
    evolved
    through many cycles
    'a man' of star-birth
    and supernovae
    made well to enrich your
    heavenly element
    You've become my
    concentration
    in star forming clouds
    within my perview
    ...Never let anyone
    trigger your collapse --
    stay true...
    humbled...
    and I know that someday
    our highly eccentric
    orbits will
    take us far outside
    of the earth's
    gray induced gloom
    to color the stars
    with immaculate
    bright lights
    of our intimate
    glow of unity
    so that others
    may observe
    our happiness
    with envy
    ...But for right now I
    understand
    that you must adjust
    your velocity and I
    continue to appreciate
    you as you
    appreciate
    the SoulurN2

    orbits becoming concentric
    round and round we go

    i've been spinning for too
    long / stardust being left
    on the shelves of my mind
    needing the time to reinvent
    tiME / to dust off /
    still trying to find a name
    for my galaxy of one
    star / spinning
    out of control controlled
    by a velocity that at times
    had me thinking
    "am I spinning in the wrong city?"
    I pray that the centrifugal force will
    pull in everything that
    protects me near to me /
    and fuse the PEACE that
    I need to find the constellation
    of Sagittarius / proof of my
    birth /
    i've been spinning for too long
    out of control /
    atoms colliding within me leaving
    motion sick before fusion of
    my nightmares to my reality
    and all I'll see / are
    rain drops putting out the heat
    of my supernova leaving
    me suspended as
    elements with no meaning

    atomic number zero
    atomic mass zero
    atomic weight zero

    a star hung by it's own
    illuminence...................
    so I'm spinning until I find
    a blak hole to suck me in
    and leave me to think
    quietly...in the dark.


    your ode is tattoed in mySOUL and indelible "poetryprint" of your's.
    thank you.

    blak

    You're right ... but I think he's GREATER than great!
    Girl at one time I just knew he was my soul's mate...
    I still believe that
    he embodies my
    idea of the
    Blak man I want to have
    in my life
    he's changed my SOTARI
    and I
    :heart: him for
    all that he is
    and also
    for what
    he hopes
    to become!

    Thanks sista for the read!
