A PLACE IN THE STARS
Lost in your cold cold arms
Yet your manliness endears me to you
Even as you cup me in your bony arms
I’m caught in galaxies
Stolen by Mercury and scorched therein
Deceived by the treacherous beauty of Venus itself
Oblivious to the evil wiles of Earth
Reddened by the sand dunes of Mars
Lost to the swirling clouds of Jupiter
Confused by the deceiving rings of Saturn
Mesmerized by radiating beauty of Uranus
Gone with the winds of Neptune
And feeling congested in little Pluto
Where do I run to my beloved?
Even when the nine planets have rejected me!
I would go to the stars
For there my beloved awaits my very presence
Where we would transform into celestial bodies
And no longer be far apart
Where we would entwine as one
A place for us in the stars!
