parsecs


all we have is time

time is what we trade

because it gives off light

light is all we have now

we used to have more light

light that we sent into the sky

beaming into outer space

the emptiness

but if you look up

into the darkness

you will see countless lights hanging in the sky

light that is years old

light that takes years to reach us

never going back
