Orbiting


Orbiting

Stardust and constellations
It’s where I found myself
In a place of darkness
With the occasional specks of light 

No gravity to hold me
And no path to follow
I stumbled blindly
Across planets of sorrow

My scarred surface
And my hardened core
Crashed against a sphere
A failed star floating alone

Loneliest of all planets
Drifting with no orbit
Its light was extinguished
By a meteor that abandoned it

Its magnetosphere held me captive
Pushing me against the craters
I was tethered like a hostage
To a sphere of dreadful silence 

An escape was tempting
To reclaim my freedom
But I stayed hoping
Perhaps I’ll be its hero
