Ever icy chill on the autumn leaves

those white crisp layers of cold

not just covering what is new

but hiding away the old!

You are

the only

exception

to me.

You are

the one

I live

breathe for.

You are

the only

reason

I smile

I laugh

I forgive.

You are

my only

exception.

The Dying Ghost Star

10th August 2015
Lincoln
By Becki Ashton
DRAFT 1

It dies, but it takes millions to disappear

it shines, glows, sparkles for the stars

a mesmerising blue flare filling deep space

shards of glittery fire balls arch over

and curve under the pink framed beauty

it fears not of it’s end, for it is just light

but light that illuminates the darkness

and shines through the galaxy

upon the years that have passed by

Hues of the nebula fizzle and burn

constellation Hydra holds its place

but only for now, as soon it will be gone

slowly fading, passing from this void

stellar wind swirls around and spits it out

choking on the star dust within

they won’t stay around forever

it will create a pathway, a gate, a window

to others who want to live for all of time

but they will fade, die, no longer exist
