Orbits

Orbits
My Sun
You bring light into my life
I am honored to be your friend

However I try not to get
Too close
To you
Or
Too far
From you

To burn or to freeze
I choose neither end

Instead I run in circles
Retracing a narrow, well-worn track
Your obedient Earth orbiting
Non-stop
But never straying from my ellipse of security
Safety from your heat
Safety from your freeze

Never too far, never too close
For I don’t want your fires
And I don’t your frostbite
I want the in-between
I want the best conditions so a life— mine— may thrive
