Emotional Sky

I once defined my emotional sky as the darkest of cloud
Allowed its tendrils to snake its way through
True to my heart’s winding deep
Steep was the choice, but it was mine to make
Forsake all I’ve that I have ever known
Grown to believe that it was all I should be

Empty

Thirsty for that which it did not know
So I made a new choice
Rejoice! Became my mantra for each sunrise
Surprised myself, my mate, my brothers
Others as I the shed the dark cumulus
Luminous is how I now define my emotional sky

  1. What you’ve done with this form is stun. The way you’ve worked through this rhyme scheme to work from the dark reveal this luminous beauty. And your “Empty” as its own stanza. That is CRAFT. But at the heart of things? It’s just beautiful language. =)
