Pictures and Poems: Orbits

Orbits.jpg

time goes by

and I

see all the reasons why

you and I

are in each other’s orbits

lessons learned

retinas burned

waiting for you to change

don’t stare at the sun

they say

but we do anyway

because we’re babes pretending to be grown

and we’ve both known

it’s not you, it’s me

hiding

from all I’m meant to be

and this is what we call

a relationship

two people rubbing elbows

and they don’t know

they are each other’s salvation

and not

weighing in

on the past that’s oh so present

no, that’s not what I meant

oh wait, yes I did

now I know to love you

like lovers do

became my own darkness spilling out the light

“Orbits” – Melissa Kircher
