the pains of a universe unraveling.

the pains of a universe unraveling.

I.
mistaken for an island,
trying to find security
in how lonely and
empty everything feels. things then repeat

false instances for one, of two hearts fading apart.

II.
they all repeat the empty promises
of youth and beauty, but where lies truth-
in hades rotting?

the universe aching to be loved.

aching to be, loved by anyone.
