Poem-A-Day #121 : Orbit

Orbit

We orbit each other
like an ocean and a shore
each doing damage to each other

I want to kiss your face
to know that your skin is also salty
that the appearance of it is indeed the truth

These thoughts are captured by the gravity of itself
an asteroid possibly
a moon locked in tide

There are so many bodies in space
going about their business
like it's nothing

I press my body into the fabric of the air
I feel the flayed molecules
I hear the sound of your breath crashing to the pavement
