Another wonderful poet. Check out his poetry, it always leaves me wanting more! Written by Alexander Hicks and HastyWords
The ground fell away
Leaving my feet planted in sky
I look for familiarity
In all the boundaries I pass by
Clouds drift by like islands
And I cannot but stare
While I walk this vast expanse
This endless sea of air
I close my eyes as the breezy sea
Wraps itself tightly around me
Silken blankets of wispy space
All calling my spirit to let go, be free
Unnatural beauty, a rarity
But it is what I’ve found
So I’ll keep drifting, floating on
Out of sight of ground
Not exactly aimless
But free to just be
A part of something
So much bigger than me
As I walk these skies alone
I know that I’ve found peace
But I have not found harmony
In its purest form at least
The air thins a I continue rising
Higher and higher into the atmosphere
Momentum builds and anticipation soars
As I begin releasing all my fear
Will my conscience guide me?
Or will it lose its way?
Must I go away from here?
Or can I choose to stay?
I close my eyes, worries gone
I drift silent on cottony wisps
No longer tied to worldly thoughts
I make my home in a sky of whispers
Could it possibly be?
Is this what life’s about?
How did I live so long before?
When I have gone without?
Filled with everlasting peace
A joy so immense, so boisterous, so intense
This floating castle in the sky
Is the place I will forever feel the most content
