I have always had a fascination with space as the celestial objects have a significant distance between them yet still have somewhat of a relationship. "Space Man" takes this distance and applies it to young teenage love.
To the one who left to fetch me
Did you respond with the wind?
Perhaps, you found it of more use
And my dear, throughout your
contemplations as you ventured,
did you manage to
see me any better?
As you went to fetch the Sun,
Did the expanse of the unknown
Begrudgingly, you surmounted,
tethered to where you began.
Or was it my happiness that
wasn’t worth an eternal sunset?
The lack of perspective that sets apart
rises and falls,
days and nights,
the sun and moon,
and you and I.
Yet everything else seems to be harmonious,
Untouched by ignorance, fixated
on their counterpart
They all just seem to exist.
But you, you are the man who fears space
yet manages to make more between us.
The sun doesn’t just supernova.
It leaves its stardust for others just like it to recollect.
Maybe it’s inspiring.
But when our hearts are scattered amongst the cosmos,
They will find the love they deserve:
An eternal nebula,
A rebirth celebrated by a vivid aurora.
