Prelude to the Asteroids


A diamond ring crusted with ruby stones
My red blood stains two hearts and bones
Crimson flames drawn as asteroids

A shape of bond that I found statuesque
Blue and purple in a lined view
Collapsing with a perfect fashion
Stories of love, drama, and passion

Piercing the earth with such beauty
Leaving a crater of feelings above ground
That was buried when eyes were sleepy
Deep down inside a place with no sound

Someday the flames will burn brighter
The day I'll hold your hands tighter
Flying back into the asteroids
A circle of miraculous void

a night for you are a day,
Andri Kurniawan
