The Skies Healed Me - Poem by LongJohn Abah

Lost for words
Lost in thoughts
Lost beyond

At sea

Lost in lines
Stretched out in pains
Lost in trouble

In fruitless effort
In the evening breeze

I go on

I hunt healing

Eeveryone flee me
And, or, perhaps,
I flee everyone

But I couldn’t flee the skies
The skies didn’t flee

The skies found me
At sun down

Spreading its arms

I steady my gaze
And ran into it

It was beautiful
The skies healed me.
