Gravity

Surrounded by a billion stars, yet here I am alone;
Floating in space, lost in the dark.

I’m just a speck, in this vast, black universe.
So I search for somewhere safe, somewhere that feels like home.

I see you in the distance, light years away.
You shine so bright, brilliant and beautiful.

If I were to touch you, would I burn just as bright?
If I could get close to you, would you warm my aching heart?

Maybe you are home, and you could keep me safe.
Maybe I can be beautiful and strong, just like you.

Your pull gets stronger and I am powerless to stop it.
Your gravity overtakes me, there is no fighting it.

Your light, it looked so healing..
Now it only blinds me.

Your warmth that seemed so inviting,
Is now the thing that burns me.

You send your angry solar flares, to keep me at a distance;
Yet your gravity is unrelenting, like you want me in your orbit.

I spin endlessly around you, going nowhere in a hurry.
I see your every angle, but I can never see your core.

Is there something more beneath your churning fire?
If you let me in, would I burn to ashes before I got there?
