Inner universe

inside is as the outside
distance inverted
short space counts,

yet size of little relevance
as all the planets change around
depending on their closeness
to the sun, your core

once one is close
it blocks the view to others
becomes consuming,
overpowers all

arrhythmic cycles
some planets seem to stop,
park in their tracks
then they move on
next day
or in two months from now
they’re back
sometimes they stay away for years
one could believe they’ve left

once one is near
there is no room for any others,
each bring their moons
that stay with it forever

the outside does affect inside,
as inside does to outside,
outside can move
the inner planets
change their cycles,
altering spiralling orbits

if planet with name ‘Fear’ comes near
there’s nothing else that one can hear
it’s many moons are ‘Angst’, ‘Anxiety’
‘Nervousness’, ‘Insecurity’,

‘Alarm’ and ‘Dread’, ‘Anticipation’
‘Apprehension’, ‘Trepidation’
it often comes with meteorites
that affect all sense of being

time seems to slow,
to drag its feet
each second, like a minute

awareness so unreal
as all is re-tuned, modified
by the pull this planet wields,
good place for fear to be
is in the outer orbits,
if this can not be done
then move the sun
closer to another one

one planet worthy to be close,
keeps all the others far,
and if your sun does trouble you
merge it with the one,
for it has many treasures,
capacity to sustain life,
to enrich it beyond dreams

such merger affects gravity
and thus each planet’s path is changed
and with it their positions

some can not ideate such bliss
that can build strength from weak
dispel the reverie that seems to reason
the sun’s a planet’s planet
or even less,
a satellite,
a follower of misery
believing it is destiny
