She is a force of nature, a power far greater
than himself. He looks at her and sees galaxies
in her eyes. She is the moon, and he is the ocean.
Her pull is impossible to fight. She exists in a place
far from the earth, but still her influence finds him,
where he stands on the earth, subject to her whims.
He sees her as intangible, something he can see
but never touch. He believes her to be perfect,
beautiful, beyond reproach, but like a star on its last
breath of life, she fears that death isn’t far and that soon
she will disappear, a supernova for all to witness.
