You are mine

You are my star, my light 
in the universe — 
though worlds revolve 
I’m resolved to stay 
out of the dark. 

You are my center, the heart 
in my body —
though you sleep
a world away I stay 
fixated on you.

You are my happy, my smile 
in this life — 
for as long as
I’m on this earth
you are mine.

  1. … and is speaks to me very personally. – PS the word ‘fixated’ strikes me with a question mark. I have a few words native speakers of E use differently from what I would expect – eg the word obsession seems to be used for OCD-type as well as for passion. Might this be one such case? In the context I would have expected something like anchored or grounded – but perhaps you did want a sting somehow? Thanks for writing – 🙂
