Poem: Astronaut.

The mere thought

Of your gentle embrace,

Turns me into an Astronaut

Floating gleefully through space.


Falling infinitely through

Light and time,

Marveling at the fact

That you are now mine.


I tumble.

I float.

I am weightless, like air.

When I see you with arms outstretched,

Instinct tells me

That you truly care.


The weight of your words

Pulls me earthwards

And close to you,

I know that for me,

Only your love will do.
