once upon a time

once upon a time
i embraced a universe
called it mine
even though i did not
could not
did not want
to own it

the universe was my world
my world was the universe,
even as the world crumbled
i embraced the universe

travelling between worlds
i took two things
lost one in the sea
gave the second to another
in a different world
who took it
to the sea

in your hands, darling
cradled on your lap
the petal was a star, green
with a fire glow heart
