A short poem I wrote about promises that melt like candles. Hope you enjoy! :D <3 (Based on prompt: airplane. Title image from Pinterest!)

Candle Planes

When I was younger, I dreamt

When I was younger, I dreamt Of candyfloss clouds galore and

When I was younger, I dreamt Of candyfloss clouds galore and Endless skies to explore.

And even though they had

And even though they had Their bleeding skylines

And even though they had Their bleeding skylines (Making me realise that nothing lasts forever),

I saw the world pumping

So when your whistling tune And your sky-high dreams burst Into my once empty view, I played along.

I climbed those mountains

I climbed those mountains Scaled those heights,

I climbed those mountains Scaled those heights, those moments of Instant relief.

And it all melted and congealed,

And it all melted and congealed, Binding me,

And it all melted and congealed, Binding me, Barring me from the skies.
