Winter Wings

~FALLING, without winter wings~

My mind sometimes goes there, somewhere, nowhere,
amongst the shooting shining stars, floating like in a womb, yet not afraid,
free falling flakes, weightless – wondering why, where
from the highest branch I lost my grip gasping, grasping
and tumbling hopelessly DOWN AND DOWN DEEP… into the unknown

DOWN AND DOWN DEEP, I allowed myself to fall like a raindrop,
landing a little like winter, holding my breath, above the mountaintop,
a tremble brought about by the breeze, losing myself completely,
Wandering in welters of wasted words, into the fire of all my torrid tears,
I slip into despair into the cold, a chilling fall, after LETTING GO…

LETTING GO was the hard part, the horrid heartbreak, it always will be.
We had climbed so high, so high we had to come down
and as we stumbled we slipped we slid, slowly away from one another
because we had lost ourselves, our own identities.
My journey now must be to like -- LOVE MYSELF AGAIN.

LOVE MYSELF AGAIN, a never-ending task.
Holding on to what was and always will be a falling star.
Wishing, the wind would lift us up and put us back were we belong.
Sinking, dipping, dropping, and drowning with the sea,
A path I seek when I find myself losing grip of reality.

A Collaboration

    PD/Linda: Your facility with words astonishes me. This is masterfully composed—a stellar collaboration. "Wandering in welters of wasted words" would make Gerard Manley Hopkins proud. Wonderful!

    Hi Linda, Soon be back to commenting again. always have to take a little break. As always, It doesn't matter whether you write alone or in colaboration, the writes are always interesting, they always hold a meaning and this write is no different. The light always shines as you do know. Why? always despair, so many times. The light lies within us all. Reach deep within, take the light offered, I did when I was so young. Another excellent collaboration, write. Yours always....MIKE. X

    This poem has a very surreal feeling to it. I can relate to the feelings of losing grip of reality and trying to love myself everyday. Which sometimes feels impossible to do...I really loved this poem, Linda, it is very deep and soulful. Excellent work!...Thank you for the nice comments, my friend! :)
