A shooting star
a wish in movement
cuts the night
the fire in the sky
sheet flame like waves
meets in a ballet
of heat and soundless noise
the song of the vacuum plays
the cry of the mute
death in zero gravity
the mind is swept along
in the currents of the night
far from home they perish
Light year on Light year
fill the nothingness
making tangible dangers
that were once the dreams
are they alone
nay they take the hope
They take the dreams
of all those they protect
They stand before the future
cutting a path
into the night sky
memories of home the bait
driving the heroes onward
yet still they end in flashs
of the Blue Red death
the dragons fire
from enemies older than time
From beyond memory
they forged their way
through the blood of the weak
now we meet it is really
A night like no other

W.P.* This is truely haunting and deep your poetry dives much deeper than the surface.

A shooting star
a wish in movement
cuts the night
the fire in the sky

They take the dreams
of all those they protect
They stand before the future
cutting a path
into the night sky

You have a gift, I'm so glad you are sharing it with us. Thank you.

 I think I could need - this in my life
I think I'm just scared - that I know too much
I can't relate and that's a problem
I'm feeling ...
If you're gone - maybe it's time to go home
There's an awful lot of breathing room
But I can hardly move
If you're gone - baby you need to come home
cuz there's a little bit of something me...
In everything in you.

Agreed, incredible writing here

I love any writing on that cosmic sense =)
something so vast attributed to our own tiny lives, gets me every time
