    PAPER AIRPLANES

    Carefully you learned each line.

    Each line of my soul,
    Using restraint, and control.

    You carefully folded me;
    Careful not to rumple or tear me,
    In anyway.

    Slowly building this friendship;
    Day by day.

    Learning each line.

    Smoothing out each fold.

    Offering a warmth,

    To a heart gone cold.

    Cautiously measuring;
    Everything out.

    Making sure you wouldn't be hurt again;
    Traveling this route.

    When each fold was in your mind;
    complete.

    You walked another mountain;
    Learning more,
    Preparing for your next feat.

    Would this creation hold strong;
    And soar upon the wind?

    What would become  of this moment;
    You became my friend?

    Will it stand strong,
    Floating on air?

    Soaring through;
    The atmosphere.

    Forgetting past heartaches;
    And pain.

    Trusting in the strength;
    Of this paper airplane.

    Love how you took something as simple as a paper airplane. Made me feel like I was the one sailing through the sky on my own little journey. You have a way with words and really know how to make your poetry come alive.

    I am inspired by your style and flow of thought. You're like a chef so confident and experienced you know longer need recipes and measuring cups. You just bring all of your poetic ingredients together and make magic with word play, metaphors, logic, emotion, spacing and timing. It's another 10!

    I like where you went with this poem, the imagery how you described the journey , sailing , folding it really flowed well and I have added it to the faves

    Poetry is what is lost in translation.
