I know now I’m no longer,
the most important
planet in your orbit.

And maybe I never was,
but it felt that way.

I know now I’m no longer
the sunset
to your sunrise.

And maybe I never was,
but it felt that way.

I know now that when your wind blows,
it’s no longer to me in the East.

And maybe it never did,
but it felt that way.

It seems like you’ve found your gravity,
but mine has just been taken away
and I don’t know how to float.
