This is a ticket for the heart to fly 1st class for free.

The Trip

by Zamounde Allie

I think into my thoughts and sink

We float upon a land lost

Too much does it cost

No ATM or bank

To withdraw the cash

Too many memories to stash

Maroon on a island of love

In the water but above

All else I think

I sink

I breathe


Smothered in the past

Will our heart's last

Your eyes cast

Too many lines

to bait

I cannot wait

My thoughts maturate

Stranded we are

Without car

Help too far

To mend the scar

Of losing you in the star

That shines

I decline

The day I ever saw

The arrow flew

Why did it have to be you

Could I fly

To where tears form in the sky

To where your branches stem

"Sir are you all right?

It'll soon be night

and you've been standin' there a long time."

Is it a crime that I long to take flight?
