Event Horizon

He was
the sun
most days,
and we all revolved
around him,
soaking in his light
and being led around
by his
intangible
magnetism.

And then
out of the blue,
he would
collapse in on himself,
pulling everything
toward some
unknown darkness
he hid inside.

Amazing,
what can be under
all that brightness.

One day,
we knew he
wasn’t going to be able
to get restarted,
and our only hope
was that
there was
something
on the other side
of the horizon.

But with some people,
you have to enjoy
the sunny days
regardless.
