They told me to be honest,
To be open thighs wide
So that they could examine my insides
And calculate the damage with instruments
Being held by gloved digits.
I told them how I had been abducted
And was taken to a dark place in a dead space
Where haunting cries echoed throughout the empty spaceship.
No star light reached these far ends of the galaxy
Where I floated around meteors
Taking turns to shower upon my skin.
I told them I had become an astronaut.
That I had been forced to ride the rockets
Until ejaculations ejected me forward
Into the spray of someone's milky way.
I told them that turbulence meant more than crashing into rocky terrain,
But would also mean asteroids hitting me below the belt
Until my black holes learned to swallow wrists with ease.
I told them that double standards penetrated poles within my craters,
Staking claims to orbit my body
Until lack of gravity pulled them away
To allow another satellite to revolve around my moon.
I explained that their hands roved over my skin,
Trying to find ways to terraform me
To become a place for them to enjoy
Whenever the stars aligned properly.
I told them that outer space is so cold.
People are not meant to be in such dark places
Where the chill sits across your skin
Until it probes a hole into your heart
And burns your skin with shame
That rivals the sun you have craved for.
They asked me how did I return to earth,
And I whispered that Haley's comet comes once in a lifetime
And since I didn't want to lose my life's time,
I grabbed ahold of the tail's end
And kept going even when my body
Barely had enough oxygen to get through the atmosphere.
They were as silent as the sky had been on the return home
But held a warmth that I had almost forgotten.
They were saddened by my journey.
They quietly told me that I did not come back alone
And in far away voices asked me,
Would I like to abort this mission?
