The End?

the world split apart
on that lovely warm day
the beauty froze over
grew colder and died
the earth blew apart
and nothing was right

the pole ends of the world
were a man and a woman
the pole ends of the world
which held everything together
the pole ends of the world
which exploded and blackened

the man is unable to live
there is no air for him to breathe
the air is frozen, the air is dead
the woman is indecisive and confused
or so we all think — does she know where she’s going?
will she ever come back?

the universe is large
and there’s one lucky star
the stars light reaches us
the beautiful light has finally come
the beautiful star
has already died

the earth split apart
as did the man and the woman
the one lucky star
its light fades away
these two lucky people
gone and away?

i’d like to dedicate this poem to my friend Josh Durham. He’s gone through a lot lately and this is for him, completely for him. he read this and wrote a response to it called “2nd chance” if you want to read feel free, to at his blog.
