Icarus rejoice


She said,
love gives us wings
therefore lover,
we belong to the heavens...

Let us abandon
this frozen world
and fix ourselves
among the ceaseless blue stars...

Higher and higher
into the sky
you and I
will eternally fly...

Let us not
come too close to the sun
we may burn the tips of our wings
stay and be safe with me...

For in your eyes
is a burning sun
within you I find the end of space
and my wings are unpinned...

This is a very pretty write. I know about the Greek mythology tale of Daedalus and Icarus. Did you know there's an asteroid named Icarus that orbits the sun? It has a highly eccentric orbit that takes it inside the orbit of Mercury and just beyond the orbit of Jupiter. It came very close to the earth back in 1968.
