I believe there are an infinite number of universes
each created when we take a breath,
make a step
my worst fear is being abducted by aliens.
there’s a universe out there
where aliens control our earth
and I am unbelievably relieved
that I do not know it.
there are universes out there where I don’t love you
and you don’t love me
and where your eyes
aren’t like the light of the moon
there are universes
where I don’t dream of you every night,
where you don’t traipse upon the threshold
of my heart
and fall into me.
there are universes where we never met
at the dawn of Spring
and I had to fall asleep
without knowing you existed
and to think that these are parallel
to the only world I know
is simultaneously comforting
and I think I’d rather be abducted by aliens”
than give fate a second chance
at our universe.
