i've been thinking a lot about the stars. about supernovas and galaxies. about infinity ever expending. bigger and bigger and bigger.
what does the universe swallow to grow so big?
maybe it swallows worlds and spits them back out all shiny and new while the stars watches, their dust covering planets dancing with each other.
waltzing waltzing waltzing (little planet with little planet. twist twist turn. turn jump. and bow)
and when somebody makes a wish thousands of mouths take a breath.
and when the universe blinks galaxies collide. it is so dark when the lights go out.
i feel really small when i think of it
(like the little planet hiding in the corner too scared to take part in the dance).
but i feel brave too
my feet are hurting and my knees are scraped, but i'll keep on spilling and spilling in the milky way
and if you swallow me, i'll be star dust
i'll be the glitter that shines in the dark
and who would dance with me when the music stops?
