Friends are your anchor

Friends are your anchors

Grounding you

Because if you float up too high

You might get lost

It could be a good thing to get lost in the clouds

To have a safe haven forever

But if you float up too high

You...could get hit by an airplane

Thank you for your time

~FantasyOtter12
See this is another one that started out deep and then just went splat. Like if you were hit by an airplane. Although I kind of like the extended meaning of it. Hm.

    I laughed so hard when I read the last line...that came out of nowhere XD

    Also, a book rec: one of my absolute favorite series is called "The Great Library" by Rachel Caine. It's an alternate history/dystopian series, and it needs more appreciation!

    I love the way it combines the deep message with the comical last lines. (Im not sure if deep is the right word for this poem... maybe high?) Love your work!

    Initially, I thought you were going for an "Icarus approach" (comparison rather), but the plane sounds great LOL

    Amazing, I'm beginning to grow addicted to your work. So, do friends hold you down. Perhaps they bring you down. It is just as important for a friend to be supporter as it is for them to be an anchor.
