Meeting Gravity

Meeting Gravity

Catching my lover in starlight
Like a comet putting moons to flight
She still can’t see it’s me
A sailor who can’t sense the sea
How could this be?

A dancer reaches the edge of the earth and
Plummets so fast she falls in love
Gravity spins furiously to join us
A fusing, blissful beast

I can’t tell her what I truly am
Kill her to know I’m not alive

I’ll say nothing and set us to meet
At a place far past our sad planet
Well beyond our better lies

We’ll see if love conquers all
Not just us
