Ivory Tower

Ivory Tower

A Poem by Kelli Wyatt

"

From here,
You can see the clouds below your feet,
Individual droplets of water.
Stand up and your head will hit the sky,
Inches away.

From here,
You have no fear of falling,
For falling is impossible
When gravity is reversed.

From here,
You don't miss the ground,
Years away,
And ever still becomeing
Embeded in the past.

From here,
Atop your ivory tower,
Ground above your head,
Sky below your feet,
Nothing can get you.

This is a very well written poem. You have a great concept going on and your descriptions are fantastic. I found it a little confusing for a second (the "Ground above your head, / Sky below your feet" part fucked with my head (in a good way)), but upon a second read it became clearer. Again, very well done.

Kelly can I be honest? What are you trying to convey with this poem? I take away what, opposition? Not sure what you are saying with it. I like your writing style but this poem is a bit unclear.
