O…Here Flies Her

Very carefully

he stepped on the ladder in a display of unbridled uncertainty

in reach of the divine dangling overhead like a jeweled crown

twinkling truth in morse code (he never did learn)

remaining a mystery that he would never solve

like her

the earthbound fearless lover deathly afraid of heights

who can dream bigger than the sky

but never dares

to fly

…there is always some boulder in the path

he won’t climb

some barrier blocking access

he won’t destroy

despite his strength (that he never has used)

wilting chances eroded by time

fruit of opportunity spoiled on the vine

o…here flies her

within grasp but for one step

one more step

how it must feel to see her so close away

so very away

so near

and her

the one that stands out by trying to blend in

because she can’t 

because

when all the other stars shine, she illuminates

a part of him he can’t see

for as the muted masses only glow

she
illuminates

from distances he wants to tame

one foot, then two

extend the hand,
the chance
taken

  1. This is amazing, Emily. I kind of feel like I am falling into the same place as everyone else, like I am running out of words to describe what other’s writing does for me. This is magical in its design. I absolutely love it. ❤
