The Collision of the Suns

Updated on August 12, 2011

Black holes begin to open

Blurring stars into lines

Space and time begin to warp

Confusing stable minds


Planets, stars, and moons erased

in intergalactic war.

The universe sits back and laughs,

begging us for more.


Their world is crumbling at their feet,

to their genuine dismay.

Explosions echoing in the skies

Eradication underway.



Stop the track. Freeze the frame. Let it all be still.

A picture of young love sits on the dusty windowsill



The weather outside is frightfully

disrupting third rock from none

Yet within delightful fire’s range

no destruction can be done


Their oxygen has been consumed,

leaving none left for their lungs

But their hearts are unaffected by

the collision of the suns

      Perhaps you'e a prophet too. It occurs to me that whatever form a big "end" takes, for people, it will be no more an end than any end of any single life. It just seems sad that people contribute so much to such an "end" by carelessness and ingratitude for all we have on this beautiful planet. But then, do we have any power over it one way or the other? Probably not - just over our own selves, where we too often fail to show a lot of promise as well! If we are given this little bit and drop the ball on it, . . . why would we expect to be given more?

      Very nice! The ending caught me off guard, the lover's love is unaffected even with the collision of the suns, very well done!

      Rated up and awesome.

      Well since you didn't answer I'm just fumbling around. This is good. I find your stuff best read aloud. It has a lot of rhythm to it.

      Collision with precision

      freezeframe

      lovers' indecision

      to be or not to be

      lips locked

      infinity

      together

      nice. we forget how strong our hearts really are. and how resilient. good poem and pics. i could definitely see the image of 2 lovers sitting in a windowsill amidst an armeggedon having their last kiss, waiting for death, but their hearts will go on!

      Thanks mentalist :]

      This one honestly wrote itself. I didn't even know where I was going with it, until the thought crossed my mind "the weather outside is frightful, but the fire is so delightful". It was then, that it took a different path.

      Thanks for reading
