the great red dragon

If even the mountains fall…
then what is Love?
It is pointless, and fragile,
and impossibly small,
and it is also
the most beautiful,
powerful thing
that has ever
existed.
We have nothing,
we make nothing,
we are nothing,
in the blank face
of the endless universe
but we name our nothing:
Love,
and the stars live a billion
lifetimes never knowing
nothing.

If even the mountains fall…

then what is Love?

It is pointless, and fragile,

and impossibly small,

and it is also

the most beautiful,

powerful thing

that has ever

existed.

We have nothing,

we make nothing,

we are nothing,

in the blank face

of the endless universe

but we name our nothing:

Love,

and the stars live a billion

lifetimes never knowing

nothing.
