Something Somebody...

Something somebody said to me
Was about Earth wanting us,
Ground loving out bodies, softly
After we go down fighting our fight

Air and sea -- they just let us be;
Ground always pulled on us,
Gravity hugged us to Earth, firmly
Making itself our bed for the night

I wished to be cradled and lulled --
Exposed to my tired humanity.
If Earth really wanted me --
I would be Her most faithful lover.

For the purists: the last stanza was written flashing back on Gundam Wing episode I had just re-watched; it may be read from Heero's perspective.

Comments are often appreciated :)
