maybe try saying this

so if you can’t say every single word
then try at least a word or two
remarking maybe how
two neutron stars will dance their spiral waltz
closing in on one another
until they collide and die
lovers star crossed
poetry’s arc in motion

so dependable an exercise
you see this trying
words to say like this are

maybe now say these two
are like a music made by constant waves
dancing on the shore in time
up and bending over bowing
moving just as worshippers to land
who crash and run their lives to sand
wishing that their home were there
pray so hard that in their pounding
they simply beat each other down
breaking both in time to only nothing
what they love they part from lonely

now you’ve at least tried to say this
maybe next time more words will come
