A Burden

Sometimes,

I want to jump so high,

to reach the tangerine skies,

to lay between the clouds,

to escape the loudmouths.

 

The scene below,

sweet,

yet it makes me wonder:

Isn't this a burden;

a world so big

in a head so small.

Oh my goodness, you just made me quietly laugh! That is an anomaly. Please read my poem, Ode to the Almost Silent Laugh.
I really liked this piece, your imagery was spot on amazing! Nice job-
