Shooting Stars Poem by Marieta Maglas

Shooting Stars

Rating: 4.9

You passed in the same way
the comets surround the earth-
without touching it,
but leaving behind them
only shooting stars.

I would meet you,
I would be able to touch you,
But everything inside
would become suffering.

I prefer my solitude,
which is as elliptical as
an ordinary rock
and which is forgotten
on the seashore.

'Tis increasingly defined
by the waves.

I prefer that solitude,
Which is always
by the people around.

Day by day, it is
harder and harder for me
to understand
my inner being.

I enter the timeless realm of change
and I dissolve my memories
in a final wave,
which is a little more tuneful
until ceasing to exist.

This is a great poem Marieta...truly expressive of the effect that people can have on us, even from a distance, and how we struggle to respond. Great imagery. N
