You miss 100% of the shots you never take.

Feather secrets
floating upward toward the clouds
glissading my delicate mind
palms grasping the silky, snowy string
of a crimson balloon
curled around my soft finger
drifting up to the airy sky
fragranced with fresh flowers
dainty petals trickling down
fragilely dabbing my rosy cheeks
I slowly alleviate my grip
plunging weightlessly
disposed of my secrets.

The author's comments:
Lately I've been feeling as though I'm being loaded with secrets; some my own, some not. I'd like to imagine it was this easy to be free of them.
