Center of his galaxy

Once a man of lofty ideals

He knew he had fallen from grace

Mocking jeers echoed behind his back

Apple chaser: a sore thumb, out of place

He evades it all stealthily,

Like a chamois escapes its pack

Busies himself with mundane tasks

Till he’s a drained and empty cask

At night, he’s at her bedside

Spouting old clumsy lies

The bills that keep piling up

Run through his weary mind

With a notch, his heart divides

As he remembers what its all for

The center of his broken galaxy

That adoring gaze, those wide eyes

Praying for timely deliverance

God, please give her a chance

Help her fight this uninvited guest

That threatens to take her life
