Into Open Sky

27 February, 2013

A poetry duet by Hasty and me. Thank you for believing in me, keeping me afloat and flying.


I see the edge far too clear

The distance calls my name

And the air darkens and falls

As the moonlight floods my despair


Behind me, around me I hear your voice

Within me, beneath me I sense your warmth

You call to me out to me, reach out to me

Hoping to bring me back from the abyss


I feel your hands as our fingers clasp

I see the bottom as I cling in mid-air

I can’t look away from the view beyond

The voices keep calling, singing my song


I step forward, feet feeling their way

The horizon glows darkly distant

Your hand clasps tighter, warmer

I sense your heart saying “always”


I can feel your blood pumping

As you hold ever tighter

My heart beats way too fast to hear

But your grasp is filled with intent


I relax into the security of you

As we float in unknown directions

Forward to the horizon or back to stability

We will reach the destination together


For a moment everything is clear

There is nothing left for us here

You and I stand tall, void of fear

And together we jump into the sky



  1. Always….muah!

  2. Beautiful, both of you. Its amazing how much courage we have in our writings compared to our day to day existence.
