Meant to Be

I never wanted this for you

You were always meant to feel the rain

on skin bare to the raging storm

lost in the spaces between bolts of lightning

the center of a kaleidoscope world

slowly turning, slowly shattering

The hand of a goddess reaching down from heaven

to give you the moon in a jar

never to know what eyes in shadow see out

through landscapes of a scorched earth

along a path gone away into the moonless night

Cheers to the alien on another planet somewhere, wondering if I’m out here thinking about it.
