Black Balloon

Dry
so dry
where you are
who you are,
in the dead of June.
Rain
such rain
where I am
who I am,
in the dead of June.
Home
I'll come back home
back to you
belong to you,
in the dead of June.
I'll knot this twine
around the storm
and bring home the
summer rain,
my black balloon.

    Wow, I really enjoy the punch-drunk elements of confusion on this one, Alyssa! The conclusion of the poem pulls together the theme with great aplomb, crafting a tight yet haunting vision. Warm regards, John.

    This reminds me of a song by a group called The Goo Goo Dolls, and their song called "Black Balloon"~But You seem far far from the subject of that of that piece! Actually, as I have noted, you are a are as amazing astoundly gifted young writer, well beyond her age of what would seem gifted abilities! So much so, that it almost seems enchantedly memermizing! And, my hat is off unto You; that is, if I even wore a hat....cont....
