Black hole confessions

I fooled myself with false hope

that you would be there for me

in the middle of the night

as I craved Mcdonald’s at the

emergency room. Not allowed to

lie down here, not allowed to

sit there, wait for ten hours

as you watch your child in pain.

No light can escape this black hole

I find myself in. I smile but I have not

slept for days. It seems I am

in doctor’s offices more than

spas and gyms. I had another life once.

A star must have died

to leave me so peculiar in need

of your arms. I ate a big mac

in five minutes. I could have

kissed you in seconds.


This confession has been around

for centuries. I use it in every

lifetime. Did you not know

our paths crossed in 1903

at that farmhouse

in Niagara Falls?


I know it

was you. I dreamed about

our stars together

falling in a black hole

and never escaping

or finding light.


You feel my absence

but you are scared

how I can devour a galaxy.


She has some powers, you say to yourself.


No astronomers have

realized yet

the source

of how

extraordinary events

all lead to us.


I confess to you

as the stars witness

our disappearance.
