but will never go. Owning all the maps of every
town and city doesn't mean you're any more
prepared for the future.
[It just means you can print maps off google.]
You say you're tired of being stuck here. But
I know you're scared of the unknown. Just
like you're scared of the dark and spiders and
dying too young.
[You're only getting older, so fly while your
wings are still in one piece.]
You say I'm the one holding you back, you beg
for me to let you go. But the last time I hid the
keys to your car, I hid them in your hands. You
just chose to drop them.
[I think they are under the table if you're still
looking for them]
You say you love me. That's why you stayed so
long. A ring and a plane ticket were my birthday
presents. I couldn't accept either one. No is what
I have secretly been telling you all along.
[I've been waiting for the day you drive off into
the sunset, waving goodbye.]
Taller than the WorldYou take photographs of clouds wishing you were there.More Like This
Wishing you were free to drift with the wind.
Wishing to storm when you felt anger, or pain.
Wishing to be part of the endless, bright blue sky, alone, with, of course the occasional flock of birds and airplane, but you admire those things as well.
I think its just that you wish you could fly, or at least, be above it all.
Never worrying about the smaller things.
You are bigger than that, you are higher, you are taller than the world.
I watched you leave one day, not physically, but emotionally, you left.
You dropped all the wrong you had in your soul and became an entirely new person.
I thank you for that, I thank you for letting yourself go . . .
