Poeming: Ungrounded.

left: me, julie. right: big sister Patti.
               (for Patti)

and I’m trying to touch the ground but I can’t
touch the ground and there’s a space I cannot
breach it’s just air but I can’t quite seem to reach
and I’m afraid to go out of the house will I just
f   l   o   a   t     a   w   a   y  with only sky overhead?

you were my gravity

jle 2012  Written for Poetic Aside's poetry prompt to write a poem that scares me. Apparently i'm afraid of heights and depths. i do actually have dreams of floating a foot above the ground. Does it mean i don't feel grounded, or do i just wish i was taller?
