Satellite

Put me into orbit.

Let me drift above the Earth,

apart,

as I feel like I am

with my

feet on the ground.

I won’t be that far,

but the distance

might just be enough

to let me breathe

if I can become

a satellite.

Its always better to see from a far than be part of a big mess. Unfortunately the space junk makes me want to live on the dark side of the moon.

I wouldn't mind going out that far either, to be honest. Thanks so much for giving this a read.

I love space, and there's such a feeling of floating in it in this poem, and I adore it. There's admiration and adorance in this poem and it's what I would say to the ones I love if I the choice to float in the universe above Earth. Awesome work! - E.E

Thanks, Ezra. I always have this idea that somewhere out there is a place where I would feel at home.

David Bowie felt the same way with Major Tom. Basically just to get away from it all.

Yep. I think he had some of the same problems as me. Although I didn't like the later stuff much, Bowie's earlier tracks were very relatable.
Thanks for reading.
