(Thunderstorm today.  I allowed my thoughts to stir for a few hours.  Franz Ferdinand opened this door…)

I’ll meet you coming backwards…

Space was empty
I thought it lied giving me the hope
That life existed outside my world
My selfishness
A faulty spacecraft for my heart
Searching for signs of life
But didn’t have the proper tools for detection.

Your light
Took years to find
I’m glad to know that my one question
Am I alone?
Can be answered in the affirmative
