And The World Spins Madly On

"All Journeys Have Secret Destinations Of Which The Traveler Is Unaware"
Home /Ask/ Poetry/ Archive

when i wake in the morning,
there will still be oceans not yet explored
and galaxies not yet discovered.
there will still be astronauts and divers
and scientists and philosophers
all trying to find the most beautiful thing
the universe holds,
and i will know they are trying in vain.

when i wake in the morning,
i will watch the valleys of your chest expand into mountains as you breathe
and the freckles on your nose form constellations when you smile.
i will think of the astronauts and divers
and scientists and philosophers
all trying to find the most beautiful thing
the universe holds,
and i will know i have already found you.
