One Star

One star
Alone
Huddled in a corner of the universe

Other bodies
Distant
Their gravitational pull but a nudge, a whisper

Its light
Reflected
back to itself by the hardened shell of loneliness

Dark countenance
Cold
Fading warmth trapped in a core no being will ever penetrate to share

One star
Dying,
victim of its own success in hiding –

afraid of living, afraid of feeling.
