Opposites you said you were.
You like water.
She, the sky.
A happy place.
Together you could be strong.
You could be.
But you saw the flames of fear.
And you panicked.
Your mind, in its anxious state
– did it forget where to find peace?
So you dove back into the ocean.
Pushing away the flames,
Your momentum pushing her closer to those flames.
Now Sky still burdened with the weight of your worries,
Stares at the flames,
That reflect in her eyes.
Sparks jump towards her,
But Water is not there to shield her.
Nor can she take flight.
For you have left her alone,
Yet still carrying you.
