I've Deleted YouI've put a stop to your avalanchesburying me on your slopes.There's no point to continuethe tread to your jagged peak --A mountain mangled by misinterpretationand emotionless nothings.Like a desktop icon, I drug youinto the recycle bin and hit delete.You're no more than an out-of-dateword program to me, a soullessdocument of words you saidbut never meant.
ElectromagneticYour disc was too smallto eclipse my smile;the pebble that made no splash.With your light youbrought a complexionout of me, a sheen to my dark side.At our perigee ourelectromagnetic fields metlike rippled fingersthrough beach sand.With your solar-wind muffledwhispers you spoke of mybeautiful surface - the luminescencethat drew you into my orbit.Our elliptical danceseemed so natural, yetyou never showed me your crateredfaceless side, the Dr. Jeckyll to yourMr. Hyde.With astronomic precisionand unevolutionary speedyou found yourself drawn toJupiter, a power sure toput mine to shame.When night turned to dayI couldn't see you in my gaze,nothing but a trail of yourpearl-dust beyond my gravitic grasp.In that galactic white noiseyou wrote me notes and said -"Your gravity wasn't strong enough,""Your blues pale in his hues,""You see a sky different than mine."I felt my atmosphere drywhen you told Venus of your new orbit;how your cratered surface reflectedhis

An Inward SeaInvisible wind-feathers pressagainst my basin-faceuntil ripples fade intoan action in memory.My subterranean eyesreach for the skies, deep seabeacons stretching to seethe light in the wind-blown dry.Storm cloudsbattle my wave shroudsin an elemental war,unlike any before --When your eye meets mine,I peer into your sky,a star-stained kaleidoscopesuspended in time.
