Space Trator

Space Trator

As I float here,
In the green dim light of the tunnel,
I know I cant get back now,
Back to humanity, stuck in the darkness.

Ground control hasn’t spoken to me,
Two days I have waited. No contact.
I didn’t mean to abandon him,
I thought we would get back.

His face haunts my uncomfortable dream,
Strapped to the wall, still only green lights to comfort me.
No fuel, not much supply of food,
I’m so stupid!

So alone, in this world, a world not a world as such,
My world, my corrupt little delusion.
I lost my friend of 20 years,
All to my mistake.

Miscalculations, misinterpretations.
Spacewalk from hell,
My mind makes me mumble these words,
Words in which no one will hear. Echo’s in a fake environment.

He tangled in the air pipe,
His face red, eyes bulging,
Screaming at me to get him out,
I didn’t listen to him, I was ordered to stop, they didn’t know.

I left, he drifted away, I’m stuck here, they found out.
I have no more that one day left,
I’m a traitor, so they treat me as one,
They are, to them I’m nothing, a man in a $30 tin can.
