 Fly Away

Updated: May 20

Pirouetting and dancing

No chains and no rules

Only flight.

I am jealous as I lie in your arms


I must let you go

I must be beautiful without you

Like a bird

Without your affection

I must fly unhindered across a purple sky

I must learn to love myself

Without your love behind me

You are so beautiful and so brave and so wonderful

But I must fly away from you

Like a bird

Up through the trees

To the sun

Like a bird.
