mental ecLipse

Posted to Poetry

I could have died
just waiting on you to arrive
Dark of night and
numbered stars
Losing count and
back to start
Never got past
the number four
Never found the planet Jupiter
like I never found
out where you were
I'm caught in the rings of Saturn
and your
make up my universe
just taking your turn
Another mental eclipse
blocking the path
between your ears
and my lips
from two different planets and
the same fucking universe
another eclipse between
what you said
and what I heard.
