Following the poem, you will find the response
The Axis (by Rebecca Chasteen)
same as always.
The same ache,
and there’s no one
We are worlds apart,
that doesn’t dull the drive,
It doesn’t slow the sadness
at my axis-
that which I spin upon-
can’t separate myself from.
Who would I be
Would I stop moving?
Would I combust?
Of course I can’t ask that
we still have lightyears to cross.
We have so much darkness to navigate,
so many rocks and ice and flames.
I can’t do anything with this
but repeat it.
All these arrangements of letters and words,
to say the same thing.
Of all the things that change
this isn’t one.
pulling, spinning, ignoring me.
I can’t touch anything
without the greatest efforts and manipulations-
just for seconds of hope I squeeze from your stars.
I miss everything we never are.
