Orbital Decay

Feels like we’re going different directions,

as if you wouldn’t miss my presence,

as if you wouldn’t notice my absence.

I let you become my sun, only wanted to be with you.

I thought I wasn’t worthy of you, asked to be only a distant moon.

Unbeknownst to me and you, I was always more than we assumed.

I didn’t understand the fire, trapped under pressure.

Hidden away, cloaked in the pain, becoming something we couldn’t see coming.

The illusion of invisibility bursts

when we collide.
