The Astronomy of the Human Heart

Depression is a black hole,
filled with dark matter
that sucks you inside yourself.


Gravity forces you down
until a constellation of heartbreak
eclipses any source of light.


The galaxy is ruled by
our own misconceptions,
beliefs in our warped theories.


You forget that the cosmos
while mystifying are also beautiful,
the physics truly astounding.


In your pursuit to understand science,
you'll find that you lost the moon
while counting the stars.
