When Stars Collide


Darkened skies
Enlightened souls
Careening through black night
Disheartened cries
Opposing poles
Felt though not in sight
Ever sagacious
Though not rapacious
As they travel toward new love
Burn with intent
So un-content
At no whispers from above
Instincts guide
Directed course
The past it trails behind
Small guilt inside
Yet no remorse
This meeting of two minds
A charted path
Frustrated wrath
At pain of separation
Yet still they fly
‘Cross cosmic sky
In search of immolation
When futures meet
Soul mates born
When distances have died
Know not defeat
Nor words of scorn
On the days these stars collide
Explosions
Implosions
Two gentle giants meld
To clarify
And justify
Inside the heart they've held
No more doubts
Away all fears
Forget all past transgressions
To heavens shout
Let the world hear
And feel the lasting impression

Not much I can say....all the words ran from me when they saw this work of art....all I can say is this is nothing short of amazing.

Oh wow

My dear this is too fantastic.
Really. Your word choice is superb:
'When distances have died...' sigh. And I LOVE: (you) 'Ever sagacious, though not rapacious'. A charted path indeed...
LOUD applause!

Chris,
I can truly appreciate the style you've written your last couple of pieces in, having few successful attempts at such pieces. To say GJ or WD to this would be an injustice to you. Indeed, a lasting impression.

Thanx everyone for your gracious praise!
I've found that my writing has taken a different path as of late, (as many have noted ) and I'm glad it agrees with you!
