In Orion’s Arms – #poetry #2020aprpad

April 1, 2020

Prompt: write a new world poem

In Orion’s Arms

I used to dance with Sagittarius –
graceful swans:
gliding, diving, dipping
in sweet harmony

Light touches –
shimmering bolts:
electric energy engulfing
impulsing –

I felt safe there –
a world that made sense
no confusion or discontent
just love

Now I am stuck
in a whole new world –
Orion takes lead
as I stumble, tumble

My senses dulled –
childhood memories fading:
scattering, shattering, silently
suffocating –

You’ve done this Orion!
shifted me from my perfect world
to this tango that doesn’t jive –
I can’t keep my footing

I pretend to know the steps
to feel the beat of the music
but my desire is too strong –
I remember
I remember
I remember Sagittarius’ arms

It is all about words. Your words are enough to shatter someone's heart. Your words are enough to make a broken heart unbroken. Words have the power to change your life perspectives.
