Love Poem: Intergalactic
Thabang Ngoma Avatar
Written by: Thabang Ngoma


At the speed of light, I hear your scream
I wake up in a galaxy of dreams
Your restless thoughts shatter my sleep 
But I dare not take a step
On this terra firma of alien giants
Our love is the size of ants
In-between toenails and craters of decay
Will our love survive the day?

Their bellowed shouts are supersonic 
Emit an evil high frequency static
How will I ever hear your heart speak,
Or know of the love you seek? 

Your flesh preserved in a spacesuit
My mind covered in your bodysuit
An intergalactic love story about to be told
In this epic war of the worlds
