In the silence

In the silence
Of a void
A lonely planet
Bathed in light
Midst the depths
Of space
From it I look
Out upon the stars
Dream of planets
Round other stars
But this is my
World
My mind
I can never visit
Another world
I am
This world
I can speak
To other planets
Touching their atmospheres
But never go there
Never know them
For I do not know
Myself
And am not there
Cannot be another
Person
Can only look
And touch only
The edges
And my thoughts
Lost in the empty void
Translated
Changed
Gone.


for lack of anything else to say another poem written last weekend - the last one
Hey - this one gets quite metaphorical doesn't it. :-)
