> ON HIGH, WHERE I AM NOT WELCOMED | lacy davis

Your thoughts occupy some corner of the heavens
where I would need wings to follow.

Like a balloon escaped from a weak grasp,
my comprehension is soon torn from my command,
lost in the enormity of your intellect,
buffeted by the winds of your discourse.
It becomes so impossibly distant,
just a pinprick in the blue;
and I mourn my inability to pursue
with more than my eyes only
searching your face for meaning
I am helpless to obtain.

Like a child looking into the sun, I can't understand it will harm me.
