Lucent galactic ball in the sky
your godly presence illuminates
a stark contrast to my cardiac organ
of which an artery has been removed
pumping during night as a black hole.
The universe’s astral brightness
knows I am besmirched in pain
if it reached down to Earth’s plain
whisking me away into outer space
I wouldn’t resist, it would be a relief.
Moonlight please never leave heaven
you and the stars emit wonder as dots
humbling my heartbroken miserable soul
as I swim through each day trying to heal
my living, breathing human body and spirit.
