Kite Flier

Daring_duoby Larry Jaffe06 Dec 2013

You are the butterfly
who escaped reason
whirling your colors
in empathy
as your tongue
grows tired
of excuses.

– the room grows darker
with her departure

I wander relentless
pursuing your silent
wing falls
drinking deeply
at your draught.

– he follows
a desert dream

While you dance
to the music
of the wind
I fly kites
in hopes
of distracting you.

I could be blind
and know you
are beautiful.
