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
