Mortal and Liable to Fall

Mortal and Liable to Fall

You fling away your essence
leaping into a foreign faith.

I dig my toes into earth
in envy of the invisible.

You sing, summoning blossoms
my lungs expand in time with vibrations.

The unknown
tempts me –

I can only float
where reason shows the natural path.

Current spent
I am sent… points unknown.

I was inspired by my friend trE’s eloquent poem, Take Off. I encourage everyone to head over and read her work.

  1. What you did here caused me to raise an eyebrow in admiration:

    “I dig my toes into earth
    in envy of the invisible.

    You sing, summoning blossoms
    my lungs expand in time with vibrations.

    The unknown
    tempts me –”

    As a Writer, if you ever wonder if you’ve still got it, wonder no more.

    And thank you kindly for the mention. *big hugs*
