Millenia

After a millenia of memories, cast into the universe, I gathered each one in the palm of my hand. Every star was an epic love, every planet, a hope of something new, every moon, a dream turned into reality. Everything else โ€” the infinite expanse of darkness โ€” was where you belonged. I squeezed out every last bit of your darkness until nothing remained but light.

      1. You’re writing is wonderful, and I apologize that I don’t get around to your blog very often–“old and lacking energy” are my well-worn but true excuses.
