Weightless

Make believe that I impress
That every word by design turns a head
I wanna feel reckless
I wanna live it up, just because
I wanna feel weightless
Cause that would be enough…

Right now, I think I’m alright. My orbit is spinning steadily, caught in constant motion against the gravity of greater stars, keeping me from flying away and colliding with other astral bodies. The stars I rely upon are simply breathtaking. I deign to taste their enthralling radiance, but I’m aware of the impossibility of such a foolish notion, so I simply content myself to revolving around it lightyears away, thanking it silently for keeping me in line as I admire it from afar. But sometimes, for no discernible reason, the gravity weakens, and for a moment I break and drift away, attempting to pull back to my tether, terrified that I may never be able to bring myself back to that gravity, to the only thing that’s keeping my from crashing and vanished into oblivion within a black hole, forever lost in the infinite void. Hydrogen flares in my atmosphere and almost burns me up, as I strain and strain and strain back to that star, to that planet, to my solitary source of hope and light that always falls out of reach, to no avail. Then, to my great relief, the gravity slowly returns, returns to take me back in its reassuring grasp, returns to make me feel safe, and I can breathe easy again, comforted in its halcyon force. But as I continue to spin around the star, I wonder when the day will come when I finally drift too far away, too far for the gravity to reach, too far for the star to save me, too far gone. Within me, an earthquake deepens the rift, spreading veins of crevices and cracks, making prominent, irreparable faults, my molten core’s coriolis barely holding me in. And I wonder, I do wonder, which one will win the unwinnable race, which event horizon will occur first to end me. Will I fall away or break apart?

Ponderings and Preludes VI

Here I lie forever, sorrow still remains
Will the water pull me down and wash it all away?
Come and take me over, welcome to the game
Will the current drag me down and carry me away?
Suddenly the light begins to fade…

ON FRAGILITY

I was severely fragile

And I let you drop me

Maybe if I was more agile

I won’t be broken, maybe.

~*~

ON TROUBLE

The water is scalding hot

Their tempers are boiling

Hate spilling over the pot

It’s time for me to jump in.

~*~

ON RADIANCE

Your sunshine is quite radiating

Smile lambent, aureole, sincere

But your heat got overwhelming

And tore holes in my atmosphere.

~*~

ON INSANITY

Delusional, schizo, a crazy mess

Insults as I indulge in my fantasy

If I can swim through happiness

Why drown myself in cold reality?

~*~

ON PRIDE

I wouldn’t swallow my own pride

For once, I said I’d rather be dead

Thus I stood my ground foolishly

And ended up choking on it instead.

Ponderings and Preludes II

I’m a fly that’s trapped in a web
But I’m thinking that my spider’s dead
Lonely, lonely little life, I could kid myself
In thinking that I’m fine…

~*~

ON RADIANCE

The desolate one

The quiet blue star

Other people are suns

But my shine never reaches far.

~*~

ON MEDICATION

Take me to the pharmacy

So I could buy some energy

Take me to the pharmacy

So I could lose my memory.

~*~

ON MAKING MEMORIES

Polaroids of funny faces

Very different life races

Albums of memories, clear, happy

Shame I’m not in any.

~*~

ON SECRETS

Withheld information

Rumour sensation

Truth be told, never

There wasn’t a single correct answer.

~*~

ON MOVING ON

Hurt yourself by tripping amok

But never on the same rock

Cry until your heart gets better

But don’t keep on sobbing forever.

~*~

Astrological Musings

Not many are fully aware, but the known universe is mostly composed of dark matter and antimatter.

.

It is said that they make up about 95% of everything that occupies the vacuum of space.

.

And yet somehow, curiously, we humans always manage to pinpoint and view the 5% of it.

.

The 5% filled with endless arrays of astral bodies to observe,

.

The 5% blazing with light and utter radiance,

.

The 5% that opens up new possibilities and hope.

.

Because to us, it doesn’t matter how seemingly scant the light is,

.

So long as it’s still there.

.

And to us, the darkness is nothing else but another component

.

That makes the stars shine brighter

.

So that we could see them even better.
