galaxies – L. E.

sometimes I am quite sure

that I have died in my sleep

my body giving minute

jerking reactions to the impact

of having crashed though

a thousand galaxies

before bleeding out

upon white sheets

as my heart

 

slows

 

sometimes I am quite sure

that I have awakened dead

my body giving minute

jerking reactions to the impact

of having crashed through

the distance of the universe

before bleeding out

in a white-washed world

as my heart

 

breaks

 

 


 

L.E. is a recently divorced mother of two who basically never finished a damn thing in her life. She writes because she must, it stills the unquenchable thirst of the demons inside of her. She shares it with others so that it may feed theirs. When she’s not battling her demons, she’s out among the living earning one, as a supervisor for a road construction company, informally called paint striping (not to be confused with stripping because that would be weird).
