Reality Check, Tired of Space

I’d been taking a break in deep space
Just being, admiring the colors of stars
Immense distances but little to me
Boring of this, I looked for a new game

There, a new planet not yet visited
These were getting fewer and fewer
Limited number of planets
Unlimited span to time to visit them

Fog-like I encircled the small mass
Yes, life was there, well developed
I needed a form, king of the hill type
Ah, there was the species

I searched though the specimens
Standing tall and proud, a young male
There, up in a tree, surveying his territory
I perceived briefly, he was suitable

I moved in and took control of the body
For a moment, he was stunned, quiet
Then he fought hard to regain control
His ferocity caught me off guard

Letting go of the tree
We fell towards the ground below
I moved out to avoid the impact
Rapidly I moved back in to take control

Quiet a shock, the arm was broken
He was out, dazed with pain.
I took this moment to subjugate him fully
I contained the pain, mended the arm

The arm was as good as new, strong
But I seemed to still feel the pain
The memory of the pain woke me in my bed,
No longer was I beneath that tall tree
I looked about my room for a reality check

This had only been another glimpse of my past
Now, I was back home again.
