Momma said to never marry an astronaut,
they will always prefer the twinkling starlight
to the light in your eyes.

They'll only end up in ships that float
aimlessly in zero gravity and you will not be there.
Momma said to never marry an astronaut.

You will stand firmly on the earth,
clutching the ground and knowing
they will always prefer the twinkling starlight.

Planets will fracture and stars will collapse
long before he recognizes he can travel
to the light in your eyes.

This was simple to understand and I really honestly like it! I mean it is honest and well written and the theme is both a little 'technical' mixed with human emotions. Congratulations for the DD!

The cascade is a wonderful form, and you did a brilliant job with it. The last stanza is gorgeous. 

Also, 'empyrean' is a beautiful word, and makes a perfect title here. :hug:

Yes it is a fantastic form. ♥ Thank you so much, oh I'm so happy to hear it came out well. :heart:

I know, when I was looking for a title I came across that word somehow and I knew it'd be perfect.

You're welcome-you deserve it, quite frankly. :)
Short stuff is even harder to write than long stuff-you have less words and space to get the meaning across-but you did a good job of it. :)
