Chasing Paris

Your heart can only take
so much flame to accommodate
a one-time love
of fireworks. All the others love
only the ashes it leaves behind.
What’s sad is that,
after a night of lights and explosions,
the ones who start a fire in you
only get burned in the process.

Do not love a moving vehicle
because they never know
how to stop for somebody else
other than themselves.

The only people that came to comfort
the tears that have sprung were the
shadows and the monsters in my head.
Have I become crazy for learning how to live
with the creatures of the night,
Or have I finally grown,
for only learning to live with myself?

When will I grasp the fact that you have strayed
away from your orbit, and out of my
intergalactic messed up mass of a life?
And to think highly of myself as your savior
from possible collisions with other flaming meteors
was to think highly of myself, and too low of you.
You were not a meteor, you were a planet.
And to see you go into the orbit of another,
that may treat you a little better than I did,
is the only time I realize that once, I had your gravity
pulled onto all the smallest inches of myself,
only to have me peel it off one by one.
I am not your sun anymore,
nor am I even in the same galaxy.
When will I learn that if I pushed you away,
you won’t fall right back
to your orbit?
