Theia and Earth collided and the moon was born from what was left of Theia.

This universe is far too small.
Your orbit aches to be undone.
My only wish is to conclude withal,
Languishing, lingering, longing to be one.


Fueling the firmament with your flame,
You rip roguishly through the night.
I move myself to match you just the same
As we collide, catching each other in flight.


Our swirling cosmos stalls out into a close
As such a brilliance was never meant to last.
The solar wind sighs and softly blows,
And the dawn grows dimmer as the day fades fast.

We enter our orbits, one big and one small,
Realizing the universe isn’t little at all.
