Star Death

Out beyond the window
Deep within the sky
My eyes trace the light
The specks of hope
So few in the cascade of night

How can it be possible
To stare yonder
And be swallowed 
Falling in an abyss
Flailing for a holding

Twisting in my gut
An unwanted knowing
Shredding my being
Siphoning liquid from eyes
Destroying all that was

Binding me to the specks
Only able to observe
Undiscovered in the darkness
When the time comes to be your star
I’ll already have become a black hole

    What a very melancholy poem. Deep with feeling. And a great ending.
