Collision - Poem by Ryan Collins

Space, made of the pulsing endless vastness of the human imagination
Stars glow, comets fly, rocks drift all of this is silent as it happens in each galaxy
Quite soundless work taking it’s time
Everything must be perfect, efficient
When something foreign or new touches this space all of the workers
Must now create harmony and must accommodate the friend or intruder
If this foreign friend feels right like it must belong space will keep it
If it is an intruder planning to destroy comets fly to battle and attack
The white comets must protect its red rocks and absent sun
Then one faithful day space began to pulse faster as a foreign
Friend came into contact
The friend felt warm, soft, new, and inviting
It was another galaxy
It began pulsing as they became closer and closer
We fly away from these pink and red galaxies into the bodies of two people
Then further and further until we see them begin their new journey
A touch
A kiss
In the night
As the stars glow, comets fly, and rocks drift soundlessly and forever

    Aha! Yes! I can finally comment on your poem so others can see! The only problem is, I have nothing left to say, other than what I said in the message, so maybe I should copy&paste, but then I'd feel like it was fake, so new comment! Ok, your poem is beautiful, in a quirky spacey way. Who knew space could be so amazing? Though I do agree with what I said earlier, they really should put this in the curriculum in school. I truly love this poem, whether or not you choose to take it literally or read between the lines, it's a great poem! (Report) Reply
