Black Hole

The planets will collide this night.
Still in their orbit they remain.
What does not escape as light
cannot recover or regain.

Each planet keeps a path of one,
then lonely to itself explodes.
None is all. All is undone
when a universal plan implodes.

You and I are thus alone.
Just you and you, and I and I.
Gravity left me on my own
to the darkness by and by.
