Sight

“My love, I knew you were made from stardust,
but I didn’t realize you could hold
an entire universe in your eyes.”

When I look at you, I don’t see wonder in your gaze. I see the northern lights shimmering against the blue-tinged galaxy in your irises. It shimmers there, undulating with every breath you take. And I cannot help but to be captivated by it. I knew you were made from stardust, but I didn’t realize you could hold an entire universe in your eyes.

It is undoubtedly
the most beautiful thing
I’ve ever seen.

of November Notes.

      1. Thank you. Fortunately nothing serious, just serious black and blue bruises and lots of swelling. Wrists hurt for days and popped my shoulder but I’m getting there, thankfully. hehe How are you? Busy from the looks of things, writing wise at least, which is always a bonus 🙂

      2. Well, sort of busy. I’ve been reposting a lot. My migraines and overall pain just became too much and I sort of lost my creativity for a while. But I’m doing a little better and I’m easing back into it.
