Rocket Ship


I don’t know

what’s going on with you.

We were

supposed to go somewhere.

You were

going to take me away.

This is

becoming a routine



You said

that you had a rocket ship.

I dropped

my whole life to come along

with you.

We were going to leave this place,

but you’re

just sitting there.


Like there’s no one in your cockpit,

like you’ve lost your pilot.

Staring at the sky,

sitting there in silence.


What happened to you?
