Why Stars Explode
Written By: Maranda Russell

Feeling lonely tonight,
wondering if the night sky
knows how I feel –
it seems like she would.

All that emptiness,
the vast space between each star,
perhaps that is the real reason stars explode –
not because of heat,
not because of age,
but simply due to the overwhelming shadow
cast by their own isolation.

  1. This is beautifully written, it gives you that sense of fragility and pain that comes with isolation and loneliness, and it’s a really interesting perspective to see the stars exploding because of it. xx
