O Dear Me

I in my vessel
all patina flesh and brain
Groaning bound with earth
in radiant pain

Thus I sail the stars
heave to in the night
Mainsail to the moon
starboard I alight

Dive into the deep
floating as I might
Neutral buoyancy bliss
gradient blue in sight

Outer space, inner sea
Love plus eternity
Flesh and blood
Earthbound feet
I am.
I cannot help but be.

Edit: I keep playing around with the name. I've settled on O Dear Me, a sort-of-homage to Robert Louis Stevenson linking with the last verse of this poem.
