Satellite

dark empty spaces
cold and alone
ancient radio waves and static
time is meaningless
out amongst the stars
moving, drawn forward
or is it backward
a satellite, a comet
orbiting far and wide
but always drawn to you
I keep my face ever towards you
shine on me
the only good thing I have
smallest touch of heat, light
I’m pulled in
the center of my universe
you don’t need me but
I sure as hell need you
the most perfect shining gem
I’ve ever seen
and I’ve seen a lot out here
countless lights to follow
I chose you
oh how your gravity holds me
a willing, captive audience
here I am orbiting you
ordinary space dust
wishing you would tug me
all the way inside your burning heart
I want to be made a part of you
not stay out here in the cold wastes
forever alone and
always looking toward you

  1. Oh my goodness, that’s so romantic. So beautiful, so passionate, so devoted, so…. *sigh* If I had a dollar for every time you caused me for to melt, Tara Caribou. I could afford a pretty good wet and dry vacuum to suck myself back up off the floor.

      1. It’s only 14 hours from right now so… it’s not that far off… well, except it IS because it’s a teaser explaining what I’m doing in the month of December (besides getting another tattoo that is, which, yes, is in the books 😁)…

      2. 14 hours, ouch. I so also want another tattoo, actually I want two but time and money dictates other wise. Can I chuck in an idea as well. In your ‘plans’ can you find a space for another collab with yours truly. I’d love to do a little Xmas thing with you (titter).
