Space Odyssey

Space Odyssey

The weight of a meteor rests on my heart.
No shelter is found in the earth’s atmosphere.
My voyage to freedom I begin to chart
and travel alone through the final frontier
To ease a spirit impaired by gravity,
I release my demons to the galaxy.
As moonlight caresses the remnants of scars,
I will linger here and dance among the stars.
