Icarus

Icarus

A Poem by Ana B.

Those years won’t sweeten.

Just kiss my tears away

That seem to fall with no reason

And those soothing letters… so cliché…

 

A stranger in this world full of them…

Yet growing so attached before we leave it.

It has run out of ink " my pen

Yet still, my body yearns to dip

 

Into the sea of words

That has silently withered…

And as this emptiness tenderly hurts

Can’t stop from being bewildered

 

Over the exploding music

And flying aspirations…

Endearingly amusing

And huddled observations.

Your title evokes sensations of flying and then your poem shows us how it feels to fly alongside your word crafting passion. I love the way your observations are nicely descriptive & coming out like a tumble of assorted sensations.

I almost feel it's reflecting on the past, immersed in expression and reality potentially needing escape.

You are welcome Ana.
This was executed flawlessly. You have precious talent. I have nothing practical to say to you on this. You would be one of the creepiest people on here if that video wasn't put in context with your poem. My hat's off to you dear girl.
