Except For Your Love

planet Earth
is a predator,
all life killing
and devouring life
to live and evolve
upward and outward
conquering, consuming and
trashing our Cosmic body
both below and above,
too wierd that each life
must capture and feast
upon so many other lives
long enough to beget kids,
but sooner or later
killed in a tribal fight
or out of breath
exhausted to death,
though if not a lonely
wandering ghost,
your love dreams
through a dark tunnel
to a being of light.
