Orbit

What is it about your light
that turns you to sun and me to planet?
I have orbited your laugh for years;
its solar flares that eat up
the dark void of my coldest heart
and melts it down into a soft and happy Venus
in the vastness that I used to fear.
After all this time, I still track the same path back to you.
Always the same path back to you.
And I wonder how it is that you have turned
this empty space into home…
