And So What Have I Learned?

I’ve learned
that there are always
warm bodies

and soft bodies

but no bodies can take you back
to that first time feeling
of everything
fitting in place

I’ve learned that the truth
always comes too late
to do anyone any good

I’ve learned
that love can’t save
the sick from
the dying

everyone dies!

from the lowly worm to
the great emperors of
long dead nations

Et tu Brutus?

stars collapse into blackholes
planets become unhinged
losing something of their orbit
galaxies blink out
as if of no consequence

and you and me will
be forgotten just like the rest

love wields no mercy
it consumes all the same

and like birds on fire
we collapse back to earth

– A. Ramirez
