* a follow up to my sonnet - To Love Her

https://www.poetrysoup.com/poem/to_love_her_1129828

"We sail through endless skies..."

Each night the voice I hear inside my brain
grows weaker as our destination nears.
She beckons with a siren's sweet refrain
allaying any cause I have for fear.
A planet caravan conducts the quest
along the Milky Way's vast outer rim.
So many worlds to search has left us stressed
and wond'ring if my dreams are just a whim.
Yet deep within my heart I know she's real
and somewhere here within this great expanse.
The universe and I thus made a deal-
my soul for one last chance at true romance.

Imagine my surprise and sorrowed tears
on finding she's been dead ten thousand years.

I wonder my friend if you would grant me a boon. How do you paste a picture on an individual poem? I can do it on my homepage but not on my poems. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Timing is everything. Wonderful write my friend. I wonder what a person does when their true love is no longer attainable? Have a wonderful day.

Hello Son of Spock. Loved your sonnet. Yes, a black hole is 'all consuming'. Matter, energy, mind, feelings; everything to restore the emptiness. There, all is lost. Best wishes. Tony

Lol ok man it’s just metaphorical for me not finding the right women to be with. If you don’t like it cool. I’m not doing it for your approval but I like your work too

It is about a woman. An alien but a woman nonetheless :)
