letting me go (a poem)

she seems to have had little problem letting me go
falling away
in trajectories free of my
or influence
into the loneliness
of deep space
and blanket of stars
guidance systems have malfunctioned again
i seek a new north star
holding my breath
hoping for the best
cold numbing my outstretched fingers
