Aphelion [mlmm]

Universe space

I orbit, as if
You were a star,
A sun; I’m too light
To eclipse you,
Too heavy to break
Free of your waves.

The dark grows colder
And my will dissipates;
I have reached the farthest
Point on my journey:
The abyss calls my name.

Gravity wanes,
I have but a moment
To recalibrate.
Familiarity beckons,
But how vast
Is this space and

So full of grace.
