daddy promised
if i held his hand
that we could fly together,
and draw a sky picture
for a missing mommy
who had flown away.
that we could map
a path for her to follow
to find me.
i took his hand
to find
that when we flew,
my pictures
were swallowed
by storm clouds.
angry tears dropped
as did a handhold.
when i landed,
i landed alone.
no map could find me.

The fat that it is simple it shows how you naturally feel about something

Thank you for your comment! I like to experiment with simple forms of poetry, because I think that they convey a lot.
