Inspired by the movie, “Passenger.”
Like a cosmic dust,
I’m adrift and lost in space.
I’m not where I’m supposed to be.
I woke up too soon.
It’s a tad lonely.
It’s just me and my misery.
I need somebody.
Someone to share my life, my story.
I’ve enjoyed the luxuries
The ship has rendered.
But why do I feel aimless, empty?
There’s a void inside me
That can never be
Filled to the brim by material things.
I want to live, Carpe Diem,
Even if I were to die in this ship.
For I cannot change anything
By simply worrying.
But I need you beside me:
To share those beautiful moments,
To hear your voice,
To listen to your thoughts,
To have your arms wrapped around me
Like your whole life depends on it.
So I woke you up too early.
Can you blame me?
I can only ask for forgiveness
Since I’m aware I’ve been too selfish.
However, is it terribly disappointing
To spend your waking moments with me?
If not, let’s enjoy the remaining years
We have in this intergalactic journey.
