Clouds Wanting Life

by Maple Tree   Jun 11, 2020


taller than these eyes can envision
as I lay diagonally crossed my billowy bed,
mind sinking tween feathers as the fan
blows teary lashes.


to climb, so breathing feels good
not like at present when smoke
covers lies of darkness and other
scary things.


is nothing more than existing
as fingertips lose grasp of yesterday
and tomorrow, limbs grow weaker
when the clouds are so far away.

    Missed your poetry lately, dear Maple... such a heaviness in this, in only existing as the world becomes more suffocating, and you try to cling to the hope of tomorrow and the dreams and sense of freedom that clouds can give. The hope of something greater to hold on to, to gaze at.

    Hugs to you <3
