You are the first-ever escapee

Seen by earth’s astronomers 2/08/05 Tuesday

Zooming fast out of Milky Way Galaxy

At 2.4 million+ kph velocity!


So they called you an Outcast Star,

A  bereft erstwhile companion of a Lady Star

Waltzing together back home, twirling,

Fox-trotting yourselves faster and unknowingly

Closer to the edge of the dance floor where

Mr. Black Hole-the Monster that pulls and devours

Awaits Little moons and planets and unsuspecting

Star-struck lovers like you (especially)!


One dangerous whirl caught your Lady

A-twirling into the Monster’s fatal embrace!

Gone instantly with no trace of her wild perfume,

Glittering tiara, bright laughter and all!


Aware and suddenly alone you zoom

Out of danger zone as fast as you can!

Exiting towards the intergalactic unknown

180,000 light years from my view-deck salon

Mourning disconsolately for your

Lady Love’s demise!

In the black loneliness of space,

An Outcast Star you are not

But an empyreal Survivor!
