The Leap

Our worlds divergent,
simultaneously, yours
adjoined to heaven overlooking
a river as wide and blue
as my heart; mine mounded
with defiled snow and frigid hope.

For one instant I leap
into that cloud, hanging
like a kiss in the air, face
first and arms spread
as if wings defying
the constructs of matter
and dispelling gravity.

It swallows me whole,
spits me back out
onto the pavement
in this place sullied with gray
leaving only the faint
whisper of water
on my cheek.
