Time for a New Sonnet :-)

Update from the Other Side of the World

 

Haven’t seen you in a while—can’t say I

really care, either. Life’s been too busy

for silly things like that. But I won’t lie:

sometimes I miss you. It makes me dizzy

thinking of how far apart we are. You’re

gone, I’m gone, and it’s so righteously real.

But life’s good with you on the other shore,

and now that I’m here, I finally feel

free. I can stretch my wings to their full length

here: I can fly, I can fly, I can fly.

On my own, I’ve finally found the strength

to soar. There’s no such thing as falling—I

am not afraid anymore—paradise

achieved. My side of the world is so nice.
