Lead Balloon

You filled me up
like a lead balloon,
but I couldn’t float
when I was full of you.


I would rise
but then I’d fall,
because to you
I was nothing at all.


It just wasn’t fair
I wanted to fly,
to touch the air
and to kiss the sky.

So I begged you
until I cried,
and you screamed
but finally sighed.


You gave in
and let me go,

so now I’m soaring
here on my own.
