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 these hearts they've held

No more doubts
Away all fears
Forget all past transgressions

To heavens shout
Let the world hear,
Feel this lasting impression

Did someone call for a genius?  What do you mean you meant Christopher?  Just kidding, bud, this poem has always a favorite of mine even if some people can't tell insanity from genius....LOL

Wonderful poem, as per usual!

Michael, since Christopher is an Aquarius, I should tell you that more geniuses are born under that astrological sign than any other! And I'm not just saying that because it's my sign too!

Yep -- I still like this one!  

(But I'm not convinced about all that "genius" stuff -- hehehe)

 Full fathom five thy father lies,
Of his bones are coral made,
Those are pearls that were his eyes;
Nothing of him that doth fade
But doth suffer a sea-change
Into something rich and strange...

 May I never be too busy to help another's load,
Then I'll be drinking from the saucer 'cause my cup has overflowed.
