i.   On some nights,
    street lights guide
    this lonely heart
    to her lonely bed.


ii.  In this universe of twilight skin
    & mismatched bones,
    I wonder just how many poems sleep
    beneath the inkwell of her eyes.


iii.  My body is a house of stars,
     and her palms are black holes
     sucking ( me ) into their vortex of



     nothing.


iv.   She says, "Pleaseómy moon,
     pleaseógive these bones a reason
     to stay."

    & I am whispering lovelies
    into the sanctuary of her heartbeats.


v.   "Goddess temple,
     sunset eyes, &
     my windowpane love-

     Let us eat the stars
     together."
If you follow me on tumblr, you might have seen the birth of this little gem. And I have to say--I am very impressed with myself. I've fallen in love.

Absolutely beautiful.
I am a massive fan of all of your work, but this is my favourite by far.
Very visual images, with perfect amount of emotion.
I could really connect with the persona and understand the meaning.
I would suggest using more... Varied descriptions within the poem. Fr example; if you are writing from two different personas, actually switch your writing style along with the metaphors. By doing this, the facet so so much larger and can be related to by almost any audience.
Overall, beyond excellent work and I look forward to more of your beautiful poems, no matter what they are about.
What do you think?

The vivid, in-depth, yet smooth texture of this masterpiece was absolutely ethereal. I felt as though I was allowed to partake in this forbidden fruit. Not only because it captivated me so. But because I enjoyed the place in which the reader was able to take. Marvelous read.

I think it would've been more breathtaking (>craves a heart attack<) if you had gave us more about the woman. The Goddess Temple? Well, while you shared your thoughts, I would've enjoyed a little less mystery. Explanation, is what I suggest.

But I still loved it. Marvelous job. Keep it up, please.

Usually when I read poems, I see myself as an outsider and it takes its time to reach into my emotions, but your words cut right to the core and it makes its way outwards (if that makes sense). You have such a rich collection of connotations and you transform words into something else.
"My body is a house of stars and her palms are black holes" I can't think of any other ways to describe this kind of intimacy, your poems describe a state of mind beyond physical feelings, they transcend to the spiritual realm.. Do you publish ur works??

This is absolutely lovely. The whole thing makes me want to fly or at least jump off a star.
