Exploring the stories of women who live by a ride-or-die philosophy

[POETRY] Constellation

By Nikki Coco

Out of millions


Shining brilliantly

A luminescent ball of energy

Mimicking rays of sunshine

A force to be reckoned with by far

Ceaselessly penetrating one’s electromagnetic field

The push and pull of forces alike

Despite multiple galaxies

Nothing can keep them apart

External forces refrain

A sturdy love


Piercing eyes meshing

Allowing entry into souls

One consciousness

They are mere reflections of each other

When one shines, the other shines

They shine together

Amid a constellation of many

Two radiant stars collide

Like kaleidoscopic elements

Blending into a composite

Of everything that was

And will be

A consummate love


Out of many, one
