Poem Death of A Star

Long ago whence the World initially formed

Lady Love fell atop the blanketed blackness

Embracing all Lovers who were to be left heartbroken, in hopeless despair, with trampled dreams

Her jagged nails grasped achingly into the night, parting holes throughout the ebony sky

Peering down onto Earth with questions of why rummaging in her head

She wept an eternity as the first rain quenched the barren ground far below

And with every single tear drop, one crystallized star molded in each desolate opening

Throughout history, to some the stars are a delight, a wish I may – I wish I might, a guide in the night

But these twinkling ornaments are clearly from her above

Whence in eons, fueled by smoldering embers of loves nevermore, many stars simply die

Shattering exploded pieces of broken hearts across the sky

And so when I per chance see their stellar remains, I’m reminded that Lady Love weeps for those like me.
