I read a really nice simple and short poem today. It went like this –

I look at the skies and wonder if

The stars look back upon as & see

Something that we don’t even value

For I think they fall just to become

One of us.


This is by a user called withering_pages on Mirakee. I really liked the idea.

And then commented on the poem like the cynic I am –

“Or they fall to their damnation

For earth could be their hell”

I think that would have been the kind of end I would give to a poem like that.
