I built a house in the sky

I built a house in the sky

I painted it all the colours

of a twilight night.

I came to see it
whenever I could.

I pushed open
the door…

I fell right through.

Many a time
it locked me out.

And at times it locked me in,
but sometimes it left the door ajar.

I wished to walk upon
its clouded tiles.

To call it my heart…my home.

But a house built in the sky

Would brace and buckle

crumble and break…

I built a little house in the sky

And it remains…

behind my dreaming eyes.

Renewed from 2012

  2. How beautiful. You know I feel one day Earth is going to get so populated and the tech is going to upgrade so much that humans might actually start building their homes up in the sky. That would be the only place left. Do you have such thoughts too?

    Best wishes from The Strong Traveller and have a great day
