The Exploding Sun


You are the sky, I am the earth.
Our true passion the sun did we birth.
Destined to live forevermore,
Spreading our romance rays from shore to shore.
My heart burned for you like my very core
You rained your heart content on me and more.
Your weather changed from sunshine to storm
My core rumbled and I changed many a form.
Our passion burns my liquid love into your care
Your love rains down on me from clouds for you reciprocate and share.
We have shared many cycles, more than our hearts can bear
We’ve grown old and with it our care.
Your weather is violent now, dark and cold,
My core is burning out-no longer so bold.
Every sun does set and ours is nigh
I erupt and quake and you thunder on high.
Mortal immortals, our love cursed to die by winter
My green flesh withers and I feel the snow tears you cry.
My core is dead, my flesh wasted,
Covered in love turned hate, bitter and now tasted.
The skies are clouded over in dark foggy condemnation,
My thirsty deserts beg for reconciliation.
We battled the seasons for millennia, our sun burning bright and Strong
All of creation praising our union, singing our love song.
Now they sing an elegy of our impending divorce,
Nothing can keep us together, even though we force.
My burning being depletes your very layer of skin
We’ve fought hard but the battle between us we can’t win.
We watch the exploding sun set on our hopes and dreams together, civilizations hinged on our
Shoulders,
All has gone to dust in cosmic dark, debris and boulders.

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
