Somebody said they understood.
It surprised me when they proved it to be true.
I can't believe and can't stand to believe how similar she is to me,
Because quietly she tries to understand everything,
Ignores the razor blades (just like me) and takes assumptions as the truth
(Just like me.)
Pretty little Cassiopeiae
Dancing around our desolate fire giants
Pretending every moment isn't a fight against their gravities
Though we see that in each other and we see each other caring and noticing
More than anyone on my side ever did
I wonder if this is it?
She will never be replaced but as I say this
I get images of combustion and two crying supernovae
We dance our rounds till the lights go out then we lose our patience
With gravities and sink a little further forward.
Closer to each other but farther away from our home planets,
Living with the past and still wishing to go back to it
Together, we dream we'd never had to occur
But it has happened and what happens must do
Orbiters on different planes of existence
Who should never have met, but did because life is unfair that way.
The stars swirl and we constellations spin
Shining brigher but unnoticed, so far away we're never even seen
Not that we know, not that that's our goal.
The sun now revolves around her planets
So do you
And all we want is to shed a little glory on them.
Plural tense, I'd bet that you can guess why.
