We Could Have Flown

We could have flown
together
as in a dream
A leap of faith
from the sheer cliffs
of uncertainty

As one – but two
we would have soared
over snow capped mountains
through forests
of colour and wonderment
and skimmed the lake
of the Black Swan of Desire.
Bringing light and joy
to that desolate place

Released from the tether
of inhibition and expectation
our Souls could have
reached for the sky and touched
the stars of a winters night

And if then
we plummeted
to the eternal death
and life
of the mundane
Would it have
mattered?

For a time
we would have
madly
escaped
the sanity
of an insane world

For a time
our reality
would have been created
by the gods
of our dreams and desires

And so
if we plunged
into an oblivion
of our choosing
would it then have mattered?
