Pic : Self

too far to hold
yet captive
you hold my eyes,

i know not
who put you
there,

just as i know not
who put me
here,

the affinity so natural
yet the distance
unexplained,

explanations abound
but i laugh at all
the logics of science thus far,

wondering the why’s
of your existence
as i often do of mine,

if stories
are to be believed
they say you are one of us,

for you had to be
a visitor here
only then could you reach that far,

but living amongst fables
the truth
is often hard to find,

hopes abound though
in the unsaid depths
of the heart,

for those who see you as less
will one day see you
shining amongst the stars.

  1. “but living amongst fables

    I think there is an ethereal truth that lies within your words. As beautiful as this is, it has a paternal feel to it, as well.

    Oh, geez…your glorious mind. Your poems wreck me, you know. You’ve ruined me, V! Auuurgghh!!! :o)

    Stunning as always. ♥︎
