Astronaut’s Heart

Image source: Google Images – Author Signature Included in Image

she fell in love with an astronaut
but he wanted space
and every time he left
tears would flow down her face
he carried her picture
in his left boot
looking upon her face in secret
and wanting a route
to where her heart lay
out across the stars
he loved space and so must she
or so he thought so he embarked
coming back with pictures
and rocks
but the longer this went on the sadder she became
and the locks
were changed one time
when he came home
having found a new planet
but her heart had been sewn
shut from him
because he was never there
always chasing the wrong way to show his love
and all he could do was stare
into the window
as she sat with their pictures all around
throwing each one in the fire
with a deep sobbing sound
he could not understand
because he could not see
he loved space
but all she hurt for was he
