A Hole Where My Heart Was

to tell people that they don’t know who they are
is to be a star
but to be a star on earth
that is
to see rebirth
in a whole series of moments
is hubris
for stars have not collided
and minds have not melted into
and to speak of personal desire
as if your desire
is everyone else’s
is not to be a star
it is to be what a star was
and now is
a dark hole
sucking in
all that you claim to know
but what you know
is limited by the light not yet here
by sounds not anywhere

thinking for others
is not the same thing
thinking for yourself
and when you think for
someone else
an omission of truth
becomes a lie
and a lie is not truth
a lie is not
a lie is not
who any of us were meant to be

if you can see out of
the hole that you have dug
know that dark stars
are always expecting
something else
to fill them up
for their own cup
has not yet runneth over
and you are not willing
to give everything of yourself
