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.
