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
