The Fall of Mars
I, distant Sun whom can't deceit eclipse,
By your cold heart where now black holes exist.
Lustre of Mars you face apocalypse,
And your earthbound vile torture I resist.
I have met stars you tried so hard to dim,
Which to my cosmos they bring hope like light.
Like Saturn's rings my trunk has gained a limb;
Their love will help end my eternal night.
If not for Venus and her warm embrace
An ember I would be, without her fuel.
Without her I would feel alone in space:
My constellation holds her as a jewel.
Mars, from my grand universe you are refused,
I, distant Sun no longer am abused.
