Grounded

I don’t fly anymore
I keep my heart
grounded
Too many parts
have gone missing without
a trace
Vanished off of the
radar map
Black box of feelings
lost into the ether
There’s no salvaging
them now
And your voice recorded
words
and the packed memories
never reached their
destination
They never touched
back down next to
my ear
A reassuring
I’m here
Never taxied back to
my open arms
So I don’t fly anymore
for my own safety
