What Is Out There? - Poem by Kenneth Maswabi

The universe has many doors
Ever open to swallow my thoughts
And sometimes my dreams
And send them to the other side
Where the cosmic wind is quiet
And the big bang has left no trail
Only silence roams the night
In search of echoes

I looked outside my window
And saw the stars in their billions
Trapped in their eternal twinkle
Drowning in the sea of darkness
The sadness in their eyes
Protruding from the night sky
Their tears ever shining
In the middle of the night

My sad dream interrupted
By the intruding noise
The starlight above
Exposed the dark edges
Of an Unidentified Flying Object
As it stealthily approached

The unconscious conscious me
Unable to scream
My tongue tied by fear
The remnants of my courage
Unable to rescue me
From this night crawler
