Event Horizon


When I looked up

All I saw was the event horizon

And the last blink of white light

That ever existed.

Then all was dark.

Then I was alone.

A solipsist,

Engulfed in a miasma of forgetting,

Without a single soul in sight.

That was the fleeting moment in which I forgot

Every colour I ever knew.

But just because light cannot escape

A black hole

Does not mean it ceases

To exist

Within it.

  1. Solipsism… how very philosophical of you this morning. The thought that only your mind is certain to exist and others might not exist at all. Very deep and wonderfully written.

  2. Theoretical physicists have theorised
    that at the opposite end of a black hole
    is a corresponding white hole.
    But I don’t mind, so it doesn’t matter.
    For I too am solipsist when it comes to it 😎
