Like the Dying of Stars

    Like the Dying of Stars

    Surrounded in darkness, on your radiance I must feed, 

    passions burst I splinter, into dazzling shards of need,

    burned by everything you touch; heart, mind, and soul,

    an undeniable force, near you my resolve will not hold.


    In your embrace I long to blaze in your scorching depth,

    to be seared by your regard, you cremate my flesh, 

    until I am but ash, blown on the winds of your breath.


    Like a dying star you explode across my darkest skies,

    your brilliance erases everything before my eyes,

    a vision of unconditional love I see you refined,

    I stare longingly into your light, without fear of going blind


    Your exposed heart, a beauty beyond what I could ever imagine, 

    You have been concentrated into a core of inescapable attraction,

    becoming the very axis on which my universe will forever spin.


    With you I have learned how to live and love again,

    for too brief a time you will  outshine even heaven,

    and as you dwindle into an unseen faint point of light,

    I will feel your influence, pulling me in tight.    

    Bryan David Lang

    Nice erotic write with a twist of the outer unlimited space travels that avail Us naught. I can tell that You are somewhat a fan of Superman,as well I am. Nothing wrong in Science Fiction, I say. Nice poem! I see no Kryptonitic rays of badness eminating from this write,only good talents dripping through.

    Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.

    Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
