Part I

So, any time I get an idea for something I write it in my Notes app. I was re-reading some old entries and found this poem which I had written around the end of last year, but I didn't like it much because it didn't really mean anything to me back then. I guess somewhere between then and now, this poem found its meaning and I've decided it's going to be the first of a three part series.

I hope you enjoy this entry and, as always, be sure to let me know what you think by leaving a like, comment or reaching me on Instagram @cingblogs or @_c.mara!


I always thought poems had to be long

But your brief presence in my life has shown me otherwise

A small burst of light

That brightened my atmosphere

And woke my moons

And stirred my stars

One unsuspecting night two universes became one

And I was certain yours was the next planet I would orbit

How could I know one singular meteor

So wide and unavoidable

Could spin us in such opposing directions


I tentatively wonder

Set us back to our rightful course?

From the briefest collision

A whole universe has changed

So I will keep this short

As fleeting as your stay

But hopefully just memorable enough

You will want to enter the pull of my orbit once more

Because I thought poems had to be long

Did this feel complete to you?
