Agitated Air [what it would mean to move]

what would it mean to move
out of your orbit     into what
long night     no fun being
locked here     bright face always
turned to your indifference

how could I have known it would
be hard to live on radiance alone

but if I must let me not want
more than this field     this tender to
& fro in equal time     let it do
