Shooting Star

Tumbling randomly without any semblance of grace
Without any companion or a familiar face
No path to tread, no orbit to trace
Just a nameless rock, in the cold infinite space

The distances are large and encounters few
Constant darkness, never a soothing hue
Fear and desolation seem to be my only friends
As I fly through space that has no end

From a great distance I see your light
Burning brightly and I exert with all my might
To turn towards what could be my first sight
Of a world without darkness and fright

Being alone in space leaves me free
Free to make decisions, free to be me
But would I like to be alone, make it my destiny
Or should I be pulled by the love of gravity

But it is tough to resist the allure of light
And I make my decision, hoping it is right
I fly towards you, feeling no remorse
And I feel the pleasure of you pulling me close

I am happy that your love I feel
And I approach you with a lot of zeal
Knowing that my loneliness you will heal
Although your love, my fate it will seal

I feel pain as your love tears me apart
I start to burn, but in my heart
I feel love, in every recess small
It's better to have felt love, than not have known it at all

    Unique, enjoyable expressions take us to love's destructive destination and I was willingly absorbed by each moment of the trip. A great read, unpredictable and rocking. Why choose Free Verse for form when rhyme is so prime in your poem? Again, I enjoyed this winning write ... CayCay

    oh that ending really resonates with me. This one is kind of sad and yet I love this kind of a poem. The metaphor of the lonely star shooting through space!
