Drops Of Neptune - 'A Celestial High' - Poem by Dilantha Gunawardana

Did you lose yourself out there,
As you hung on to a journeyman, a king-size voyager,
Passing horizons, past the serenading blue;
In a deluge of tears from the aquamarine mass;
Drops of Neptune and an eerie cry from a space banshee;
Plodding towards a destiny, in to the dark twilight of the Oort's cloud;
Darker than nimbus, in a deluge of asteroids;
As orbitals gestured from all around;
In their ecliptic trajectories, Kepler's ghosts,
Even the shadows of moons, titans of the Milky Way;
All in a huddle, to bring you down to earth;
Away from the ominous clutches of a madman;
As you were cidal, in those ominous clouds;
Beckoning from above, amidst the white dwarfs and the jovian giants
As the shooting stars gestured your travels,
From the oceans of Neptune's tears;
As they ransacked your tranquil getaway to the heavens;
Celestial cocaine and heavenly heroin;
In your voyage with your beloved, the madman, the king,
Your celestial time bomb, in your lofty high,
With his highness, narcotics.
