Only the Planets Know

I got lost
One night
Staring at constellations
Their well penned map
No match
For my scattered gaze and restless limbs
I approached
The dawn
With even less direction
Than a helpless fawn in open field and season

I can still see the tail of the brightest shooting star
I was there when it landed
When it ignited in fire
From where I stood
The sky alive
The stories that it told
Spoke of great adversity
But not of where to go

I awoke
Alone
To the sound of hushed whispers
On the phone
Their tone
Suggesting it time to leave her
I lay still
Afraid
Without any indication
The bed
I stay
No longer fit for my frame

I can still see the tail of the brightest shooting star
I was there when it landed
When it ignited in fire
From where I stood
The sky alive
The stories that it told
Spoke of great adversity
But not of where to go

Only the planets know

The stories still untold
When they will unfold

Only the planets know

I can still see the tail of the brightest shooting star
I was there when it landed
When it ignited in fire
From where I stood
The sky alive
The stories that it told
Spoke of great adversity
But not of where to go

Only the planets know
