My heart turns to Stardust

My heart turns to Stardust

By Edger Kasunsu, Uganda:

Velocity of the wind high,

Black clouds above me static,

Photons from the stars dark,

And my heart turns to stardust

As I see her with another star.

We used to make love

Underneath quiet tree branches,

Beneath the clouds at night,

But she defied nature's gravity

And ran away with a star.

Protons shift in my body,

My heart slows its beat,

And as the rope tightens

Around my brittle neck,

Moonlight begins to fade.
