Cosmic Quest (Part III): Interstellar Romance
the explosion leaves us drained
a burst of creative energy
surges through the atmosphere
a cosmic solar flare
set everything ablaze
oh, I need to land
on something more stable than your nebular energy
I need to find my way this time
out of this black hole
and not farther in it
push myself out of your orbit
thrusting away from your gravity
into a void of my own.
phases of the moon
reveal your faces to me
shadows, clouded - leave me wondering
you control the tides of my emotions
with little more thought
than the oceans do the sea
I don't want to drown anymore or waste resources on
this interstellar battle
I want to reach out for a hand
one that will hold on tight
keeps me anchored and will not let go.
Cosmic Quest (Part II): Kinetic Energy
live wires, exposed, worn thin over time
the elements acting as the ultimate
two polar opposites so highly charged
highly drawn to each other
and within our own force field
when we align
nothing can pull us apart.
But time is wearing us down
and the elements are exposing more than we bargained for
Our faults becoming so much more deeply defined
and what had previously drawn us together
is slowly forcing us apart.
The longer I go
away from your influence
the more I begin to wobble
like some satellite, slowly spinning out of orbit
Your electromagnetic pull is weakening
the divide is widening
and I, once again, am coming back into my own
A powerful entity
energy to be reckoned with
free to pull in any celestial wonders
whose trajectory is within my sphere of reach, within my gravity.
Outside of your realm, I wonder
what drew me in?
Or if it was just a matter of time, circumstance and flight path?
There is no objectivity to this hodgepodge design
when you're in too deep
it's impossible to see the galaxy for the stars
I wonder if I'm assigning meaning
where there really is none
If I've spent too much time here in this system
If - in my quest to get involved
I lost myself in the solar flares that followed.
the likes of which I've never seen nor experienced
The universe wobbled
and like two magnets rocked upon their sides
our force - once pulling, once pushing
