When I jumped, I jumped for you,
Trusting in your gravitas to pull me back by curfew.
When I flew, I flew for me.
Trusting in my mettle to still my heart until I was free.

Your world looks trifling from these heights.

Yours always,


Everything begins with lucid indifference.
(Albert Camus)

title is perfect for the poem, and I like the simplicity and brevity. Sometimes we can say much more with fewer lines...

Like Mark Twain said, "If I had more time I'd write a shorter story".

Nice work

When I flew, I flew for me
Reading this poem made me want to dance with your bionic leg.
