Artemis

ABORT ABORT
but Donaldson was already drifting
further and further away from us
the thickness of his suit decreasing
as his courageous kindness
floated on within his demise
and all I could do was stare panic stricken
through the small window's cruelness
as the white speck of my friend
became more and more surrounded
by the blackness of space

This is one of my poems that is also on Write Out Loud. Here's a comment from that poetry site: " A hard subject brilliantly shared. I really like how it could be literal or metaphorical."

One of the most profound things the writing of this poem lent to was being so far away from anything; further from anything that has ever existed as you could get, a loneliness that cruises dimensions beyond comprehension. A loneliness fundamental to our fears and space would preserve Donaldson for eternity, infinite loneliness; some thought.

a nightmare indeed - but within it is subtly wrapped a moment of serenity

Hey so pleased you picked out a key word - I wanted to suggest that space is enveloping him, devouring him, like something sinister, alive, an entity, rather than him just floating through a void. Thanks so much for reading and commenting! !
