beautiful bird
at arm’s length
i want to bring you close
to see where your purple ends
and indigo begins
but i know
that any move
will send you flying.

i’m awestruck
at your mercy
wondering if it can get any better
craving a closer look
terrified of scaring you away.

i’m immobile
insatiable
disillusioned
wishing for wings
to fly away with you
into wind
out to sea
to rise above
go beyond
and be free.
