Solar System Poems 15: Locked In Your Embrace

Even here in deepest night
we have each other.

Our path isn't like
what the others take.
They have been frustrating years,
learning that your 
expected promotion
turned into my demotion,
only learning hours after the others.

Still, that ship has sailed and 
new horizons await.
and even here in deepest night,
even as I may be losing my air,
even if I am forgotten in the future,
I am locked in your embrace, content 
with a face that sees only you.
