“Take me away to far off places.”
Her voice was dreamy and preoccupied.
“How will you get there?” I asked.
“I don’t need wings to fly.”
Her gaze fixed on the setting sun.
“I only need a breeze.
I can escape on your breath.”
“Why should I help you?”
My fingers interlaced around her body.
Her eyes caught mine and said,
“Haven’t you ever had a dream
you dared to wish come true?”
Without another word,
I lifted her to my lips
and kissed her like never before.
With a sigh,
she scattered into a hundred pieces,
each part of her taking flight in the wind.
