you are a universe

we are very small
objectively, this is true
there are moons and planets and stars
much, much bigger than us

there is a gravity to a soul
a gravity to being
to looking into another's eyes,
and really seeing

we orbit like satellites, and
we hope our paths will cross someday
as we beep boop our way across
the solar system so wide

we took our first breath at the same time
as the universe breathed hers
we are the mixed up children of the cosmos
our star stuff echoing in our eyes

we are very small
objectively, this is true
there are moons and planets and stars
much, much bigger than us

(but you make me feel - 
 - like i am floating in space;
 - that the stars were placed there for me,
and for you, to stare at together;
 - like the universe thrums in your veins, 
and the echo of her song comes out in your words,
and i am eternal, we are eternal, and time - 
time is the universe taking a breath,
as she steadies our hearts to beat in sync)
