Love Poem: Faster Than Light

Faster Than Light

Take me now
to a place in the universe

where I can stand upon
and jump into the

vacuum sea
and accelerate

at a constant nine-point-eight
meter per second squared

and fall to infinitely low
ground, so I can travel

faster than the light
passing through the lens

of my eyes,
to see the future

when I go against
the shrinking cosmos,

to visit the past
when I face

its expansion,
and to love the present

when I fly across
the plane of time.
