Fever Dream Distancing

fever-dream-distancing

On days like this, I wonder when clouds will decide to shatter.

When blue skies will be blinding, and golden sun will wrap itself around my hands, giving off it’s light.

But for now, I will catch raindrops with my eyelashes, and let skies do the mourning for me.

I will let lightning enter my mind, and strike through moments when I finally confessed a love was mine, to find they already found another rumble of thunder.

I will embody the universe for those who need an example.

I will sunbathe in nights, and star gaze during days.

I will find a new meaning of distancing myself from people who need a breath, and a wingspan full of space.

Until sunlight returns, and brings us together, I will let the birds do the searching for me.

Xandra -- With poems like this one, I rediscover my deep empathy with people, since your words stir a response of spiritually "being with you".
