Shining upper bright.

Eclipsing binary star,

Beta Persei B

And being the third star:

Beta Persei C.

Translated as Demon.

Of all stars in the skyline.

Galactic Love

My Everything

The weight of your eyes

Are upon me.

I cant help but be transparent. 

You undress me 

Without my clothes ever falling

You discover bits of me

Like Im all the stars in your galaxy

Day after day 

Our universe grows larger

I am the black hole

Bringing you in and never letting go

Taking you places

That dreams never dared

Esseence of the Moon (Sonnet 1)



Perhaps you are the essence of the moon,
Shine bright, cut through the darkest, deepest night,
Beware of day as sunlight breaks your loom,
Fear not, grab hold, endure the day so bright.
You bring with you the beauty of the stars,
But lose the greatness to your sister bold,
The planets greet your sky, with journey’s far,
Often forgotten by your friend so old.
No fault of yours has it become today,
The orbits last and fight for peace of mind,
For when it comes, this light, price is to pay,
Your debts are covered they will come to find.
Fret not the views of those you have to pass,
For you become the one who has to last.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

My first attempt at a sonnet, hopefully with more to come!

Silent now at night

Watching the stars shine so bright

In my lover's arms

No longer alone she floated among the stars,


She danced and sang and serenaded her way through the universe,


I am merely here to humbly admire.




She left the atmosphere before she could be tied down,


Before anyone on the Earth could fill her with doubt,


And here I am, enjoying her show.




She’ll never land until she has finished her journey,


A trip full of joy and learning,


And I cannot wait to be taught.




She dances through the dark late at night,


And doesn’t disappear until the break of light,


Enjoy your trip,


For you have found your home,


And I will see you again soon.

Pretty sky

Full of lights


What delights

Live out there...


Stuck down here

In my bubble

Best I got

Is the Hubble



Magic here

Magic there

Pondering why and where

Did it start...


Did it begin

Does it end

Who knows

Where or when

Life goes to...


We are all

Made from stars

Even dust

Even Mars

Natures way...


Science shows

Magic too

Even logic

Falters through

Your egotistic delusions of self waste

I am the shadow, fading into silence


I am the words you shoved in a box


I am blood, sex & violence

behind the symbol of peace


I am light enraptured unto the void

from a thousand years of cosmic darkness

chasing the souls of stars


I am the mirror you wish to avoid

with the tears that coiled down the drain

& the years wasted on nothing--

but what you thought was yourself...

Author's Notes/Comments: 


! Useless Stars !

To a lover and a beloved,

The starry nights are most loved,

Since romanticism is born at once,

Letting their souls in ecstasy dance!


But to the impoverished ones,

The stars’ splendor and stance,

Are pointless since they have no power,

To lessen the poor’s misery and hunger.


The stars are as precious as diamonds to each writer,

But to the needy they’re something not to go after!
