Different Levels by Aneurin Gareth Thomas 💫 #poem #PoetsHub #WritingCommunity @CoffeeandaChat1

​           Up and down, on the one side gravity

​           On the other, this hot air balloon inside

​           That takes her wandering above all

​           With a wicked smile looking down at me

Leaving me where they stop measuring height

​           On the sea level of how low I can get

Stuck with sand blown in my eyes, and her above

Where she belongs, floating above the mundane.

We’re on entirely different levels, high and low

But I’ve always hoped she’d take me, hanging on below

Together far away above, from where it’s easier

To survey the ruins of life.

And I’ll dream on the shore’s edge

And she on high, on the end of a branch

Not knowing which side she’ll fall on waking

Leaving me to drown on the high tide of dawn.
