KITES DON'T FLY...


Away with the winds
she let him flee.
Released and free...
He yelped in glee.
By the hopes, for the sky,
He soared up high.
Stable... Hurt...
But not to cry.

That was it,
Life was back!
Back he thought,
but not for long...
Human, was he.
Kite, he was not.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

You sometimes feel you've totally gotten yourself over the person you've loved for long sometime back in the past only to realize that you haven't. The Lover here is compared to a Kite which is actually handled and controlled by someone below. No matter how much it might think it's free and can go as high and far as it can, but the truth is, it doesn't have any freedom of it's own, it will eventually come down.
