NaPoWriMo :: Day 8

Astrolabe

Every time I walk into the kitchen today
I feel the sun set my skin ablaze
and all I can think about is pressing
myself against you, leaning in, savouring
your scent and I don’t know
what it is about Neptune in Pisces
but I’ve lost my centre of gravity
and maybe the stars
will leave us alone someday
so that we can find our own way
and not be driven by compulsions
but for today, there is the sun’s warmth
navigating my thoughts in place of your absence
