A Two Part Flight - Poem by Charles Hamouth

Flying Part One

it's the space between matter
i see every molecule
i can count them
i can calculate
the percentage of oxygen in the air

it's the space

and the time in between the space


it's the space
the space
i can see the black in between
the space
i hear my own heart
beating through my ribs

it's the space
travelling the length of it
frozen in position
i count each
and every step
savour the space
warm and promising
it's a moment
a trillion figures
an explosion
the faint background music
the quiet silence muted low
it's the finely drawn display
the primal scream in edvard's hands
it's the space
the climb to its peak
the space travelled
it's the warmth

our lips touch
and the gap is filled

a kiss

Flying Almost Solo Part Two

what would i have done


if you had stepped away


if you had said to me
what would you do
if i step away


without hesitation
within less then a blink of time
i would answer
then i would

my love

then i would

i would die alone

    A very nicely written piece. The punctuation (i.e...., ...,) could have been forgone (Report) Reply
