I need space

there is a universe inside me,

galaxies and planets waiting to be discovered.


you prepared and trained

and bought your space suit.


but when the man began counting down

you abandoned ship.


you ran from the flames and the possibility

of truly knowing me.


maybe it had nothing to do with me.


maybe you realized that on that journey

you would only see your own reflection in the window


and that was too much for you to bear.
