the death and rebirth of the universe

I was laying on the beach,
watching the stars
implode and shatter,
then fall from the sky

it was pitch black
the only thing left
were tears and curses

why must my loss
mean the fall of
so many worlds

then I was running,
toward the pier,
as fast as the sand
would allow me to go

I found you at the end,
past the wheel and coaster,
standing on the second rail
knees against the top

climbing up next to you,
I pulled you to the top rail,
kissed you quick,
then we both jumped

down and down
into the cool, refreshing
water, such a relief
after what we had seen

we floated for a while,
then swam to the shore
where we stumbled
onto the sand

as we leaned into each other
trying to find a way to
get warm, something caught
the corner of my eye

a light little twinkle
in the center of the
dark sky, followed by
another, then another,
then some more

they were all coming
back, it all happened
because your hand
was in mine and you
were making me happy
