  • I understood then
    the burden of gravity
    parallel lines, parallel destinies
    never meant to converge
    in the space-time
    continuum of love

    Gravity brought you to me
    a collision of souls
    ending in a single point
    a beginning and
    an ending

    With you, I was
    free-falling, weightless
    lighter than air
    zero gravity

    but all objects fall
    at the same rate
    regardless of
    their mass

    so what goes up
    must come down
    gravitational pull
    surface tension
    the unseen forces
    of natural law

    Inevitable, predictable
    a formula for pain
    an apple dropped
    my heart sank
    you left me and
    I hit the ground hard
