Across the Stars

Sam Beach, Cor. Charcoal and pastel, 2024.


By Leire Ramos


Across the stars are the moments I miss the most. 


           Where the collision of dust envelops the shallow moonlight


 Into the forgotten void,


           My memories awaken with hope. 


In the glistening constellations my dainty hands trace, 


           The puzzles I reminisce. 


Across the stars lie the deceptions you created


             In your vivid imagination.


They linger around in orbit 


           Before crashing down on the universe. 


Across the stars you can find me,


           Flowing like a celestial force


Towards the black hole 


           Inside my broken heart.
