When Curiosity Doesn't Kill You……YOU LEARN. More Than Just a Breathe of Fresh Air

I’ve Learned; Satellites

You said

we just wait to die here

waiting on something to happen

day in and day out.

I asked you for a cigarette

as I had none

no phone or wallet

no pictures or proof,

completely on my own.

You said it wasn’t a planet

but a satellite

that we were looking at.

I felt like satellites

bouncing off each other

receiving information

as it came to me

from another source

other than my own.

Closer than the moon

made of metal

no windows were visible

no doors or ladders

You just hung in the air

like you were meant to me there,

yet all I did was stare

and believe

in what I saw.

I wanted to go to it

but didn’t know how.

So instead I stayed

and went to sleep.

I woke up

in the middle of the night

to only try to help

those in my sight.

It felt like the end

my only chance

but I hope I get another one

just one more chance

to really go to you

on my own.

I thought you would come to me

because I’m only human

years of lies, deceit, and manipulation

built inside of me

from the things that I heard

and the things that I saw.

Now I wait patiently

for your return

to see your so called satellite

maybe it will take me away from here

I’m so tired here

and I just want to go home

but I won’t go

without a fight

I need a natural life

and I know I’ll see you again.

But if I could travel with you

it’d be a dream come true.
