Finally

Written by: Sandra Hudson

Finally

I’m forgiving you.
Making you the helium in my balloon.
Taking you into my lungs, once more.
Giving you one last chance,
to totally misconstrue how I say things.
before I retie it.
Send it soaring into the sky.
To associate with the cumulus,
manipulate the currents, navigate the wind,  
then disappear into someone else’s back yard.
