she
fell in love
with Pluto
while he was
still a planet;

but
she could only manage
to fall in love
with shooting stars
in the glare of your eyes.

what more could you truly ask
from a universe girl?
Another poem from my 'secrets series'.
The secret:

“I get by on infatuations with everything and everyone, falling in love with concepts and never people.”

That is a really cool concept (to do the secrets thing), as well as the actual poem. I really appreciate the contrast. I think you could create a really interesting character out of this.

Reminds me of the last season of Sailor Moon (Sailor Stars).

Also, you mentioned Pluto, so now I have to rant. (takes a deep breath) HOW THE F*CK IS PLUTO NOT A PLANET?! Last time I checked, it had 5 FRIGGEN MOONS!!! That's 5 more than Mercury has! So what the hell science, what the hell?!

Other than that, loved the poem.^^

:) It's a dwarf planet, there are a few in the solar system :)It has something to with it not having a certain amount of gravitational froce or something equally as boring. There are a few dwarfies bigger than pluto, i think it was just easier to demote one object rather than premote like 10 :) I agree those. Some weak sauce science right there ;)

I was taught it was a planet so darn it I'm going to call it a planet. Using the term "dwarf" is just silly. So what, if we discover a planet bigger than Jupiter are they going to call it a giant planet? Probably not, it'll just be a planet.

Hahaha. I know its pretty silly, but scientists have to do something between saying "We just don't know.." I would keep calling it a planet, iv'e obviously been indoctrinated by the evil planet re-naming alliance (PRA) but you have a free mind. Fuck it call the stars roundy-brights and planets germ pebbles, ultimate freedom :)
