poetry

space/time

darkness, darkness,
and then there was light;
a flash of brilliance,
to separate day and night.

the stars and the moons,
the planets and galaxies;
brought forth from nothing
yet governed by gravity.

cosmos and suns,
the universe unending;
you stretch and stretch,
forever extending

into the darkness,
your flash of light beams forth;
while i rotate in one spot,
glued to the face of sturdy Earth.

my eyes, my eyes,
how they stare into the heavens;
and watch and wait,
hoping for the essence

of a streaking comet,
or celestial glow;
yet the vision above,
leaves me in pain below.

oh, jeweled star crystals,
and dying nebulae;
how i ache when I see you,
from a million light years away.

and time, time,
you grow into space unknown;
while i age and hollow, fading
to specks of dust and bone!
