My Soul is a Burden for the Universe – Antheias Ghost

I’m your orbiter
beyond the sky and stars
beyond time itself

I’ve always been here
patiently
waiting for you to come back home

I’ll keep the dust away, because I know it makes you sneeze
I’ll set the table one more time, and make sure your bed stays smelling fresh.
I know how much you love the feeling of a clean bed.

and I’ll play your song one more time
echoing it through all of space itself

my heart

crying out for its lover

a single moment
and everything stands still

the dust settling again
and I’m back to work

bracing my heart, for the impact of your arrival
and making sure, the dust never sits too long.

      Thank you Rae- one of my daughter’s has been writing poetry for the last couple of months; of course I love them all, but some of them literally blow me away!
