The Pedestal

"Up" by Neha
The pedestal was high,
High in the sky,
Sky above all earthy things to hold,
Hold beyond gravity's magnetic folds.

The pedestal was high,
High as his image
Image of her perfection,
Perfection like a falcon's flight,
Flight beyond any earthy plight

The pedestal was high,
High was the seat,
Seat away from the messy dirty earth,
Earth she craved to hold in her hands,
Hands pointing half above, half below

The pedestal was high,
High she remained,
Remained with a wish for a handful of earth,
Earth with her roots and stories of fallen stars.

The pedestal was high
High it remained
