Galaxies-a poem inspired by National Day of Silence LBTQA+ (which was 4.21.17)

Fern and Eve spent countless hours

trying to count each star

one

by

one

when the weather

was dry

as those apricot shavings

in their yogurt.

They didn’t know what

to expect once

a black hole came

to swallow the earth

whole.

 

They had a plan.

A blueprint per say

and in those dark

and lonely times

in the summer

when no one else

was around to play.

They added new

items on their blue print

and danced away.

 

The years had passed

and the love they

thought they wanted

wasn’t pure as

each other’s.

They added new

galaxies to that map.

And finally discovered

that the world

they wanted

wasn’t pure

as their love for each other.

 

They hid in those galaxies

until the black hole

headed the other direction.

Fern and Eve scratched that

blue print

and ripped their past

to shreds.

 

There are new galaxies

and stars to discover.

Endless amounts.

  1. Dear Hannah,

    I already responded within the post area, but wanted to tell you a second time, this was a great poem. I love how you have one or two words on a line when it really makes an impact. I am not a poetry reader, but you may convert me.

    Much love,

    Grandmother
