escalating

photo credits: reymundo

I escalate to the top
almost touching the sky
the eerie blue light
hurl me into mystical place


my palm touch palpable vacuum
in those steps,
I spin like a top
in the holed ground


endlessly waiting for your smile
in the deep green eyes
when it finally shows
I become a beautiful chrysalis

I loved this imagery. I could feel the depth of that smile as it reached those green eyes.
