grounded

one single impression: icarus

trying to stay grounded
she tied stones around her ankles
hoping for success she waited

after two sunsets passed
she removed one stone
and skated careless

when the stars released
their sleepy dust
her tired eyes closed

awakened by sudden
her eyes saw the truth
floating towards never
