Another stunning poem. Not one of my favorites, but I still listen to it whenever it comes up on shuffle I love you

Who danced with me before now
Who joined me at the ship’s bow
Who held my frightened form still
And now you say that you will

But in the years behind me
Who ever cared to find me
Who stayed me when the tears ran
And now you say that you can

Forgive my sad suspicion
But hear my admonition
None yet have hoped for rescue
And now you say that you do

Oh how I’ve wished past caring
That one might be so daring
And sail me to the next star
I almost think you are

Space, we look to the sky
Diamonds swimming in squid’s ink
Tilting back our heads
Until we cannot close our mouths

We try to count but lose our place
And shiver; not because it is cold
But because we are afraid of falling
