Evolution

I sat up all night waiting for
you-
somewhere between one
billion to ten billion years.

 
You-
a red supergiant with your
tightly bound, iron nuclei,
dense stellar winds,
contracting core.

 
I sat up all night waiting for
you-
somewhere between one
billion to ten billion years.

 
You-
and your increased surface
temperature smoldering
within me, your fused elements
consuming my energy.

 
I sat up all night waiting for
you-
somewhere between one
billion to ten billion years.

 
You-
and your shockwave, instead, you
collapsed from within exploding into a
supernova flashing bright then
fading into blackness.

 
I sat up all night waiting for
you-
somewhere between one
billion to ten billion years.

 
You-
and your magnetic field a
dynamo, yet, your stellar flares
dimmed, your rotation slowed, your
luminosity fluxed, and I slept.

  1. There is such an intensely magnetic interwoven… whats the word?… combustibility… to this… like two hands trying to cup the water before it flowing away, only to realise, all water flows to the sea…

    Wow, that was so badly articulated -blushes-

    1. Awh. No, you said it perfectly. There was a combustion–or maybe it was an implosion of sorts. In any case, it was unfortunate yet insightful. Thanks for your words!
