Of a star so unimaginably distant
I know not how to behold her light

Of a heart so immeasurably near
I know not where to feel her rhythm

Of a star so infinitely crushed
I know not how to release her light

Of a heart so discretely braced
I know not how to salve her passion

Of a star so irresistibly ablaze
I know not how to shield myself

Of a heart so passionately aflame
I know not how to avert my gaze

Of a universe so seductively intended for……

Of a heart so exquisitely zoetic for…..

I know how to cede

I know…..

  7. Greg! This is so utterly beautiful!
    It made my heart dance – it is still a pouncing about. One of my (many) “obsessions” is white dwarf stars. This made me escape into my imagery of two dancing stars ready to collapse into one.

    Well-penned, my friend. Of course you know that dragons were birthed inside stars, too. There is a link, a bond, there, that cannot ever be severed. It’s why we spend so much time star-gazing – we commune with that part of ourselves and connect with the places from whence we came and will return to, in the end. πŸ™‚

  16. My first read was wonderfully inspiring! Glad to be following. Cheers.
