Staring Into the Void

a Poem by Raquel Swann

Downward spiral,

I can see across the galaxy,

With a foot hanging off the edge,

Beseech courage to hold,

As it crumbles before me.

I need only to fall,

Perhaps, I’ll float into the Sun,

Shine bright for a moment,

before I’m scorched.

What if I land on Jupiter?

Stranded in a gaseous void.

I could ignite like a comet,

and dance across the sky,

For all to see.

If I stay here,

None of that is possible.
