home

I couldn’t describe this sky when I left
–all the times I left–
but it is all that I thought about and everything I missed
Its vastness would creep into my dreams and whisper
of freedom and the scent of mountains once conquered
The deep blue of its crisp afternoons would taunt me
And her clouds–oh, her luscious clouds–filling me up with
every piece of myself I ever set down and walked away from
thinking I was better off without
You are everything that defines me, as only limitlessness can do
