Hoping

I have always watched from a distance
Hoping

Hoping that one day
Someone will blow
A little smoke
Towards me
I will inhale
A little will be enough
For me
To lose myself
In the hope
And the hope has been my dope
All this while
Keeping me high

Higher than the sky
I float
Hoping for a little smoke

Smoke
Has no wings
Just a few rings
In which you dissolve
And in you
The smoke is lost

I am left with the stub
Cold
At times half lit
Sometimes even good as a cigarette
Unreachable from my sky
High

    hope is always a spirit high… a glow in the sky… unreachable, only for eyes to sigh
    hope sometimes remain… in dreams without refrain…hope to fall in blessings with the rain…
    best woven dear Gauri… 🙂
