Weightless

16 02 2007

Out in the cold night sky
You sit in your rocket ship…

You watch the world grow small
Weightless: amazed by it all.
How small this planet seems
You watch us watch you on our TV screens.

As you re-enter the atmosphere
Feel the blinding light
Touchdown with a sense of fear
The claustrophobic night
How small do you feel now?
Your feet stuck on this tiny world
Do you long again to be.
Weightless

Out in the cold night sky
You wish for your rocket ship.

(1998)

Love it. Cold comfort on a starry starry night.
