Little Space Sailor


Morgan Fuerstenberg graphic

I fail to find the words
to explain how the world looks

without You in it

it’s trying to walk to Pluto,

Lost in orbit
sinking into the emptiness of space

and empty bed sheets

everything and nothing

all at once

I cannot sleep
the spaceship sets sail

and I am left in this empty house

not quite a home to me

I am tired
of people telling me to move on

How does the world look without You in it?

You took the sun with You
