Of the Stars


A nonesuch, a nonpareil—with endless excellencies,
Yet still fallible and flawed with a myriad of fallacies.

Paradoxical—an entity of perfect neutrality.
Admirable in its unmatchable originality.

The existence of an eventual eucatastrophe,
Perceived and believed to be an unreality.

Confining the collapsar was the endless depravity,
Compelling it to collapse under its own gravity.

Self-loathing, self-destructing, self-deprecating,
Yet sincere and selective—certainly captivating.

Continuance of conditions evidently unpleasant,
Made elation and exilience rare—if ever present.

The once-star would continue to claim contentment,
Accepting the absence of the entirety of its fulfillment.

The black hole which had rapidly materialized,
Would leave its rare & genuine wonder unrealized.

Further and further in itself—it fell and fell,
To be forgotten forever after its final farewell.
