I am the dead star,
Collapsing into myself.
Cringing in a corner,
I’m lost in the universe.

Sunk into darkness,
Out of everyone’s sight,
All I cling to is my past-
My gone glory and might.

I’m cold now,
All the fire I once had has died out.
I can emit no light-
Something to look about.

The constellation I once shared,
Has forsaken me long;
Stories of joy and anecdotes of suffering,
Is all what I carry along.
