Mission To The Moon & You

I pushed myself
in circles
So fast that the force
of spinning held
me in place
and my stomach
dropped to my feet
In that thrilling nausea
Watching the trees, earth, and
blur together into a
smeared abstract painting
of colors
I thought
this is what it must feel
like to fly to the moon

Exciting and terrifying
Addictive and thrilling
I felt those same feelings
when my eyes met yours
for the first time
Like I was 10 years old
on a fast spinning
merry go round
Shooting for the moon
and shaking from
Everything around me
unfocused and bleeding
except for your smile
I loved you then like
I’d loved the moon
and those feelings
