Every now and then two stars
Collide, crash into each other.
It’s unexpected, and intense,
Unseen forces that unite
For just an instant.
Always the crash reveals
Aspects of yourself you never knew.
Sometimes it results in one atomic mass, other times new halves separate.
I don’t think it matters which it is,
(as hard as it may be)
If you hold your hand out to the moon
And it shuns you,
At least you fall amongst the stars.
