The gravity of love

byUnderYourSpell©

It's serene up here by the roof
floating like a helium balloon.
Sounds of the ward so far away
around the bed of someone who
looks a lot like me,
but flatter, sheets still.
I'm poised briefly
before that final lift into space,
into a place where none can follow,
but my man, head in hands, sobs.
The gravity of love is too strong
I fall slowly, slowly,
the sheet rises.
