How Might I? – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

“Sometimes I feel like I’m slowly floating away.” Kasie West

How Might I?

How Might I hold eternity
while my heart is reaching  beyond the 
skies with feelings of feathery float 
never before experienced, as this swirl
of temporal ecstasy has roused empyrean
visions so electric, that just to breathe,
to remain firmly grounded, seems 
impossible so, how might I begin to
hold eternity?
