‘I Want To Get Closer To You’


Hand-cut paper


‘I want to get closer to you, to touch you and hold you, but gravity condemns me to this lonely orbit. All I can do is keep on spinning with you always in my sight, sometimes nearer, sometimes farther, that will just have to be enough.
There is no such thing as eternity. One day millions of years from now the end of my life will begin and as I begin to cool, I will get redder and redder and bigger and bigger until one day I will finally consume you in my dying flames and we are reunited as we once again become one’
