Ok i wrote a little story poem thingy to explain the meaning in this piece. This man went in search of stars, The path of eternity opened it's maw Taking him to the solutude of the void. The woman, his lover waited . . . And waited until eventually consumed by time The stars wept of his lost and lonelyness. Basically he became a star an eternal life a god, while his lover died with the passage of time (thats why she's displayed as a candle). The baby in the clock speaks of his lost a future never to come.
