Poem – Aim to the sky

Little poem for today called:

Aim for the sky

Amy did aim
to a fixed point in time
to hold onto the rest
rest of her mind

Yet it clawed, scratched, and scraped
tripped, trod and traipsed
and could not escape
from the mud

Amy did inject
a stimulant boost
to slowly give her the grip
as the light crawled in
she took that first step
and felt dirty, shamed, and used

Yet without the kick
there was nothing left
a shell was all she was
so she saddled on up
and took her best shot
took off and aimed for the sky

Lexicon word of the day: imperium.

    I enjoyed the poem. Did you write it while up all night with your ailing toddler? Hope he’s feeling better today. 🙂

      Thanks – No I did this one a couple of weeks ago, and typed it up the other day. Little fella is in good spirits but it’s bronchial so he has a few different meds to take for the next few days. I’ll update a little on Monday’s post. Thanks for asking, and thanks for your tips. One went down with his juice this morning, the other might be going via the strings shortly…

    Poor Amy. She really wasn’t going anywhere, was she?

      I did this one a few weeks ago, I had to re-read it. But no Amy was not going anywhere fast. I think I started this as something else and it went in this direction.

    I’m intrigued. Amy, and a ‘fixed point in time’? That’s not Amy Pond from Doctor Who by any chance?

    • Elliot says:

      That first line came from somewhere else then the poem went in a different direction. I had not even thought of the Dr Who reference, but now you come to mention it, it does sound very Dr Who.
