universe;

i would have torn down the world if you had asked
your print in the universe would be the only thing left standing
oxygen would have to reinvent itself &
the earth would have to reverse crumble &
molecule after molecule would water come back together

you glowed brighter than the constellations that held you up
& you only shined brighter the farther you stepped &
the time we had with each other blinked out of sight

i only had twenty-five minutes with you when i should’ve had a decade or more
thinking softly to myself
eight years is a long time to love someone when you only had two together

i would have torn down the world if you had asked
(you didn’t ask, so i did not)
