A poem from the sky (Free verse) by Roisin
You always seemed so far away,
So high up in the infinite sky.
I could not see your soul.
When I at first saw you in perfect clarity
I would've wondered whether
The distance had ever really existed
Had it not been
for a distinct feeling that overcame my whole
And I, in turn, became entangled with it.
The heady rush that swam
Meandered through the heart of my head.
I had been lifted by you.
I began to see like you,
Feel what you- what I
So used to being held suspended
I was from you
That I didn't realise that I was floating
On my own.
Slowly burning away in your eyes-
An ever diminishing star .
And I saw you soon after
Only this time facing away from me.
But I have now learnt
That without you I can fly free.
Without ties I can appreciate all that you gave to me
When you brought me up here.
