A fraud extending to the skies – A Poem

Stood by the shore,
To be as I had been

The rays of Gillion having

penetrated my soul,
For the love that I had had

never to be alive anymore.

Galaxies shone
the night bright sky,
Tearing the blue net

with their fire beam lights.
But my Gillion was long

gone and gone (astray),
And I stood alone never to be

the same old me as before.

*Gillion is just a name of a non existent (or existent) star far beyond to the edge of existence.
This is a poem that I wrote after watching Call me by Your Name. I think it represents the fake love that was mentioned in the book Demian by Hermann Hesse as well. An excerpt of it can be found below:

And she told me about a youth who had fallen in love with a planet. He stood by the sea, stretched out his arms and prayed to the planet, dreamed of it, and directed all his thoughts to it. But he knew, or he felt he knew, that a star cannot be embraced by a human being. He considered it to be his fate to love a heavenly body without any hope of fulfillment and out of this insight he constructed an entire philosophy of renunciation and silent, faithful suffering that would improve and purify him. Yet all his dreams reached the planet. Once he stood again on the high cliff at night by the sea and gazed at the planet and burned with love for it. And at the height of his longing he leaped into the emptiness toward the planet, but at the instant of leaping “it’s impossible” flashed once more through his mind. There he lay on the shore, shattered. He had not understood how to love.

Demian, Hermann Hesse
