Orbit 


He pulled me into his orbit
Forgetting the pull of galaxies past that trail behind
He set free the gravitational chains that bound me
Bound me to destinations past
I struggle to believe it possible
Believe it true that I would receive such freedom

I struggled to believe it true that this nameless
Planet was needed
Was required

If I was to listen to this time
This age that pulls the life out of this nameless planet I would be no more

A rubble, a mass of inconsequential materials
Destroyed by the pull

Not everyone can survive it
Not anyone can look around
Look around at this dark fiery place

But I did
I looked straight at it
Into the eyes of the blistering sun
Naive
Foolish to think that by staring straight into it
I was winning
Surviving

I placed my orbit under the control of another
Little realising that to survive to live was to glide away
Away from the pull of his orbit
Surrendering only to myself
Submitting only to my creator
And Yearning only for my freedom
