I am a galaxy

Don't tell me you love me.


Don't tell me you love me because I am a galaxy and you've only seen the stars.


You haven't seen the parts of me that aren't shining yet.


I have gases that act as emotions, that create reactions that I can not explain.


And do to my actions, I have lost more than I can ever gain.


I'm scared that you will get lost in the darkness of my body when it decides to rain.


And I love you too much to cause you any pain.


I just want to warn you not to get blinded by my stars, that you can see my scars that come with me.


I just want to be the sky you look up at when you're sitting in the city.


Just know when you say that you love me, you're living a fanasty, if you can put anything above


this galaxy.
