Space Invader

The distance between what I want
And where I am
Seems within reach
But the mirage ends the instant
I grab for it
Like a blind man I flay my arms
Feeling for something… anything
That feels good
But, there is only air
Cool, calculated, stifled air
Perhaps, I’ve landed on an alien planet
Unbeknownst to anyone
As a lethal warrior
Ready to kill
Hardened by the elements
Ready to rule the mutants
But, I can’t be sure
All I know is that right now
I am nauseous
From the revolutions- east to west
From the constant rocking- north to south
Dizzy from reentering the atmosphere
Through a tiny wormhole

The distance between where I am
And where you stand
Seems out of reach
Still, my heart quickens at the thought
Of touching skin cells
Tasting whiskey breath
And feeling something… anything
That is real

    “Everywhere is within walking distance if you have the time and Love knows not distance; it hath no continent; its eyes are for the stars.
