Safe space

You do not know Saturn from Venus,
It is your problem, the case of differentiating
Rings and separation,  in light years
Because you know how the stars line up, unabashed
Spread against the night sky.

in the mornings I will realize
There are no silver linings  in your clouds
yet you still hope for a glow,
from outside, no one looks deep within

once you give me a clue,
when I run under thunder
Hide, you said between the rings of Mars
veil your self with the clouds of Saturn

I run instead to a tent built with blankets
behind a sofa smelling of leather, and old cologne
it smells like you when you come home from work, exhausted
it is safe in here, the safest spaces are always unused
