On the Event Horizon

On the Event Horizon

 

May those brave few who venture in this spaceBlack Hole

Speed on —

as lucid and as swift as light

from your margins and the enslaving might

of your singularity, your core grace.

For those who have been pulled in your embrace

encounter nullity —

it is their plight

to circle and to spin in endless flight,

trajectories that cross and interlace.

Elusive as the heart of a black hole,

a nothingness that nothing can evade,

your nature is to lure

then thrust aside.

Yet you are doomed to pay the greater toll —

Trapped in a vacuum no one dare invade,

you are the absence born of love denied.
