Infinite Drive

We watched the distant stars

becoming more distant.

What we saw was years apart

from this moment.


And I wondered aloud about

death and all her shattered hour glasses.

A man spoke

of an infinite drive,

of traveling, light with light,

for some unknown amount of time,

still alive

and yet still: dead.

Somewhere our illuminating past

could meet another’s bright future.

Refections of moments lost

had never seemed much darker.

I watched and wondered to myself,

“Who else has lived and seen us then?”

And I watched and wondered,

“When will it end?”
