I am a planet

I am a planet
Big, immense, borderless
Incomprehensibly infinite and yet
a single pearl in an ocean
I am a liferaft
beacon of oasis beckoning my own becoming
across deserts of desolation I travel
My trajectory already defined I am orbiting
Crashing into you i am hands
on yours on mine on me
Only to be swept away by greater forces
Through this unending journey
I am close calls missed connections
Train doors already closing
I am hurtling
towards you and the closer I get

the closer I am to drifting apart

Just myself in parts and pieces
