He thought I was a simple star,

Only one among billions,

And not even the brightest.


He saw another star,

In a different galaxy,

So he went away.


I wept so hard,

That the very  moon,

Felt sorry for me,

So she whispered,

“Explode, darling. Don’t keep the pain,



I exploded in a mess of color,

Stardust, and rocks.


My color flickered across the galaxies,

And he saw.


Oh star boy,

Why did you think,

That I was a simply a star?


I was so much more than that,

And you never believed,

So don’t leave your bright star,

In that far off galaxy,

Because I am fine,

Without you,

As a supernova.
