Cloud Hurt

I’ve been on #9.
It was amazing. For awhile.
Was too young to know it might end badly.
Fooled by the soft and comfortable.
Got pushed off. Hard.
Too stupid on how to deal.
Fuck Cloud 9.
The landing was excruciating.

    1. Thank you, Jeffrey! I do appreciate your kind words. 🙂

  2. Lovely work, and I think we can all relate to being young and not knowing what we were doing, yet. Although I am in my late 60’s and still seem to be a fool for love! I am new to this blogging site and I am looking forward to reading much more of your work… Mico

      1. I love your profile name! 😉 Thanks, I appreciate it!
