A life retreats
pain and fear

The touch of hope
disguised in flames

Longing for
trees to fly
birds to create a breeze
the flap of wings
enough to cool
the scorching pain
of inner soul

No hope in her dreams
not even as she sleeps

Longing for
time to wake up
at least once for her

With oceans calm
battles of
deadly storms
tumultuous waves
to cease

For laughter to appear
smiles from heart to soul
ear to ear

Like a foreign object
in the sky

Longing for
earth’s gravity
to reach out
embrace her
giving birth to life

a firm ground
on which to stand
