No more parachutes

freefall tandem dive

nothing to stop us spinning

out of perceived control from high

can’t see where we fell from

mountain, rooftop or plane

all we hear are heartbeats

and our breath one in the same

no earth waiting below us

only cosmos’ starry skies

where fire of love burns brightly

blinding our already loveblind eyes

at near the speed of light

we soar without direction

we know not where our trajectory aims

consumed only with present emotion

leaving plans and plights aside

we let our hearts lead the way

wandering in the here and now

letting stars shine on our only today

  1. Wonderfully written, Emily. I’ve always enjoyed pieces about letting the heart lead the way. Even if doing that does get one into trouble at times. 🙂
