A Comet Named You

A Comet Named You

A Poem by Creepy Swine Guy



Once upon a lifetime came
a comet, crashing into my
atmosphere and blazing a
crackling path across my
once quiet midnight skies.

As I gazed up to the firmament,
your breathtaking arc erased
the gloom of my reality for a
brief moment. For that one,
brief moment, I was not alone
in this dark wilderness, but
just for that one moment.
Because sadly, that is the
nature of comets, to come
along so very infrequently,
and to be gone in a moment.

Witnessing a comet is as rare as seeing a shooting star. And should you be lucky enough to catch the moment. Is it self pity that keeps us from looking up. Maybe those shooting stars and comets happen more often than we know. It's just that some of us are too busy looking down because we are trying to avoid all the cracks in life's path.

This is lovely! literal or metaphor it is simple, sublime. So many things can escape our eye should we but blink. A comet the least of all.

And there it is, the human condition, that we are born and live and die alone, but in these small instances we feel as if we are seen and understood by someone for the briefest of moments, and in that moment it is enough. Nice metaphor with the comet. It streaks across the sky, brilliant and bright. We wait for it, hoping and watching, and just as soon it is gone, and we are left staring at a dark sky full of lights much too far away to touch.

Yet they are so mesmerizing as they streak across the sky. Everyone should experience a comet at least once in their lives.
