Like a star

Like a star

A Poem by Pale Rose

To see you is to miss you, like the stars in the sky.

When you are not around, there is a black hole beside me,

It steals my thoughts. Like if you were the sun, time turned back,

The light shining in my eyes, my lips, my body.

That must be why this cancer grows, capturing my pulse,

Flying away with it. Always you are gone, though; as far

As another galaxy, revolving with your own gravity.

Sending comets my way, to flow through all the empty

And to land on my heart.

Then you are near, we touch. Could we get closer,

So close that we are faster, to catch up with the light, until we are one,

Our stars within our stars, our breaths as one, our thoughts as one?

How could I capture all the little stars in you? Bring them to me,

Kiss them, hold them, within all the empty, but somehow strong.

If you got too close, I feel like I’d evaporate, just disappear.

Like a flame on a birthday candle. Just breathe, I’ll float away,

Into that vacuum of space, above clouds and suns and planets,

Into the ether, into nothing.

A game that could be fun to play...we are the spirits in this universe: free to roam, free to mingle with the elements at will.

Poetry is the ultimate expression of humanity. It is the only tool we have to express the depth of our emotions and suffering. As for my own, I see the dark side of life and find it beautiful. I seek .. more..
