On Saturn’s turn

It’s saturday

& I think about

How once upon a

Saturn’s turn

I saved you

Out of

Incredible love

& fathomless

Fear

A celestial

Fairy tale

Forboding

Forbidden

I couldn’t bear

The absence

Of you

From our worlds

From our words

From that

Complicated

Dimension

Of you

That day

I held us

For a moment

& by the arrival

Of lilac dusk

My prediction

You would

Come to

End us

In sleep

We persisted

Existence

The coming days

Telling of

Fantastical love

Persistence

Upon my return

To Jupiter’s orbit

I met 2 moons

Coming back

To myself

& you

So far away

So close

You met

Me there

To say…

Well

I won’t

Repeat it

Anyway
