Five Liners no.7. Black Hole

In the unlit space of every human heart
Is an ominous black hole
Growing bigger by the dust and dirt of the present
Lain with the sediments of the burnt past
Drawing to its gravitational field the future

    I love the ascension here within a timeline. Grows, lays and is drawn from the dust into sediment and beyond.
    Time to fill those holes with a light moving faster than the speed of light. Very Nicely done I enjoyed, Allan Gerard

    future, past and present all bound in a magnetic field of your words..

    Very well said and very true, only how many of us do realize this. It's a revelation towards excellence.

    I thank you for a profound free verse statement. We all must cope with the missing link.
    With great brevity you said so much-a telling write-10

    As you observe, In the unlit human space we may one day find the dark giant of the blown up love spinning and revolving aimlessly .... But in our search for the black hole in love we need not lose ourselves as wisdom prevails upon us to stabilise a little. Still you are cautioning about the human heart in disastrous state. An excellent five liner Madam Valsa.

    Blackhole is one of my favourite topic to ponder on.
    This is a nice poem. Relating heart with blackhole. I wish a heart be a blackhole in love.
    And there are examples...
    Just as a mother, when she even died, througout in our life, something from us keep on emitting and traveling towards her ash or grave.
    Just as our beloved heroes may be religious, everyone had become a great blackhole and forcing their gravity from ages.
    Today, i wish a heart be a blackhole. And we can say 'global heart'.

    Very true said in few lines....
    The Black Hole is getting bigger day by day,
    as it eat us in ominous way
    We feed it with dust and dirt
    and burns of the past.
    Now the gravitational pull is drawing us into the Black Hole.....

    Lovely poem with Great message. Loved it from your pen.

  • Tirupathi Chandrupatla (2/3/2014 8:33:00 AM)

    It generally not possible to avoid the black hole. Nice five liner.
