Black Hole

Echoes of memories rush back to me

like a stream of cool water and

when you speak, ghosts of feelings swim around

in my mind, so deep that they probe places I

didn’t even know existed in my body,

like this is me remembering who you are,

not getting to know you.

I once read that we are 93% star stuff so maybe

the calcium in our bones is from the same star.

That would explain why all 206 bones in my body

are lit on fire when I see you

like I’m aching to be whole again.

Outside of time

space irrelevant

the entire universe exists in the crook of your elbow
