Shift in the universe

It was the center of gravity,

The thing that held me in place.

Me, in serene rotation around,

Quiet parabola in space.

Then I pushed away and

The formula changed,

Every orbit becoming

Escape velocity. Estranged,

I drifted into cold darkness.

But when I looked toward the coming sun

I saw that it had simply been

A bright star to wish upon.
