What else could you have expected

I am the smoldering ruble of a dying star
an everlasting token of impetuous presumption
enduring an endless cascade of loneliness
in a universe of binary systems

telescopic hindsight
viewed through a lens of unforgivable regret
and the unrelenting persistence of times' broken chime

if only every warning were a wake up call
and every dawn taken as the opportunity it presented itself as
and let a figuratively guarded melancholy metaphor
present itself as the ultimate truth

distance knows no other bounds
than to keep me away from myself
