Among The Glowing Stars Would I Be Shown - Poem by Edmund Wong

Among the glowing stars would I be shown,
In murky perdition our stars be doomed,
But how on earth could we as one be known?
A wonder art thou in darkness bloom,
Too dear to forsake in terrene gloom,
But I can't conjure up excuses adequate
For us to adjoin, when no substance can fathom
The abyss deep-delved by etiquette.
However right would that be,
Were I to self-ask of thy deletion,
I swear I would rather not to be,
Than to rid thee by my own volition.
But it is naught, the will from me,
Should it not freely come from thee.
