“You were the empty space between worlds.
A darkness I no longer needed.”
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 — the infinite expanse of darkness — was where you belonged. I squeezed out every last bit of your darkness until nothing remained but light.
