Those We Cannot See

Lured closer

trapped in its gravity,

Dazzling Luminescence,

(It will kill them)

Touch between them

and It will be 

brief

restricted

Less than temporary.

Even as they are

Borne closer

they feel the Void,

yet their existence

brief

restricted

Is spent

Fixed on the brevity

of light that

their eyes–limited–

can discern.

It, the Dazzling Luminescence

The Light

It will kill them,

But the need for greater, if only

Brief

Is greater than 

the Nothing and

They brave

Eternally temporary pain

for the euphoria of

Knowing–choosing.

They are alive, but

only at the touch

But alive, are they?

At the moment

At The Moment

It burns sweet.

And then outs.
