Book Of Black Holes

You be on yourside
I'll be on my side
In between there is a book
the book of Black Holes

You sling your arrows
I'll dodge the harrows
And then I'll record it
In the book of Black Holes

There be many pages
that goes through many stages
In the end you may find it
In the book of Black Holes

If it's a five or ten
Even a zero I win
And I have recorded it
In the book of Black Holes

Your comments cryptic
Your words haze, eliptic
And like I said goes down
In the book of Black Holes

Your choice to be insipid
Your dreams are timid
Compared to what's collected
In my book of Black Holes

    Trouble with black holes, if one gets sucked into one then there is no return, so keep those pages closed. Great write. (Report) Reply

    The black holes refer to the depth of your thinking and what you do with it in your poetry. Remember that you do have light at the end of at least some of those black holes! Yes honey, if no one votes for one of your black holes, it doesn't matter, because the 'blood letting' it allowed was soothing! Loved it and that's how I interpreted it. (Report) Reply

    TAR, The perception is an important factor when we judge anything and anyone and that perception metamorphoses slowly, gradually, sometime suddenly, otherwise spontaneously according to the experience and the knowledge that one possess. The book of black holes is not so vivid, as the black holes are the secrets at the moment.. (Report) Reply
