I’m no Longer your Captive. My Heart is Free. {Poem}

I left your spaceship

No longer your captive

I’m a drifting star on my way to better

Making a home on other planets

The stars will catch me

And we will dance in the constellation as I forget to connect dots of the spell you had me under.

You can tempt with your coyness

Your sly glance is crafty and alluring

But I’m not interested.

I used to see the galaxy in your every step

Your eyes used to reflect the universe and your touch sent shivers into my dreams of cosmos, and a false belief that you were my partner in this space exploration.

The truth hit like an asteroid—I’m a futuristic creature you weren’t brave enough to discover.

It’s okay

The new moon is approaching

You too will dance in a meteor shower

No longer your captive

My blood is a crashing tidal wave against the cliff you carelessly hung me from

But I didn’t fall.

Inhaling the truth and beauty of my eternal light

I floated into space you don’t see.
