You’re my gravity

Pulling me down without me knowing


intangible lovely little thing glowing

I know you’re there, but you don’t acknowledge


Love, kiss, lust, dust..Carnal knowledge


You’re the reason I fell

lThe reason I’m falling


If I didn’t have you, I’d be floating I’d be flying

free as forever

But as soon as I jump..[you] pull me down

so I fly never


But at the same time when life’s problems has me flying

you keep me grounded

Which isn’t as bad, as it once sounded

You anchor me so I don’t drift away

I love it, but hate it every day

and if I ever start tumbling, you’re there to make sure I hit the ground

and break every single bone in my face and I still manage to smile with blood all over the place

The woman no one could ever see

so our relationship will forever be…something blindly dark of tragedy

sadly sweet my force of catastrophe

but you’re my lover…my wife….

you’re my gravity.

-S. Rich
