Three Unspoken Words


Terror – I can’t speak;

Your beautiful mouth may let
Our universe breathe—

Please wait til we’ve slept

Knowing how theorems collide;
New discovery

Yet distant starlight
Indicative of change past
Traversed lost light years

My heart quickens now—

The thought of you is enough
To fear atmosphere

Patience; Hold me close

Let us survive re-entry:
Emblazon our souls
