Kissing The Sky


I am ensconced softly cozy

in clouds that billow up above.

Feel free to pierce my flow

here I feel not but such love.

The trees are perfectly trim

from Mother Nature she breathes.

Inside there is life flowing

in veins flowing out of the leaves.

Storms brew shatter they do

the dew that I knew now is gone.

A new day has called my name

now the night is where I belong.

Under the roof shatter me quit

does the sense that carries me aloft.

For the values I valued hard

taught they have me to seek the soft.

I revel in the curses of hells hands,

it’s called life and I know it well.

The curse of living can at times

be a tough story one must tell.

So I say adieu to the blue skies

as I fly into a realm where no one sees

the dreams I possess to confess

what sets my nerves and hurt at peace.

Never failing I fall gently back

for gravity slaps sense into me.

I want for fun as I cozy up here;

your touch and a kiss please.

My night is a victim of myself

and me I am burning at the core.

I want the time of my life now

before I can’t have it anymore.

Be this be that and be what you are

center stage I feign a daze in haze.

But I am not free in my spaces

above in love free in all my ways.

So I’ll kiss the sky once more aflame

in the name of the one who sings

the want of myself but everyone as well;

whoever you are or who you call king.
