loss

i am as an astronaut
unexpectedly untethered,
and set adrift from my ship
now lost in the fearful distance
growing ever smaller.

mother is gone,
father is gone,
and i –
i am a satellite
on my own.

loss is a watery abyss
we must navigate
without our north star
to save us from drowning.

and so i find my gemini twin
while i break off
small pieces of myself
like a shattered asteroid,
that we might journey together
and dance in one-another’s pull
until i fall in blazing, fiery glory

away, away, away
