"it's better to look at the sky than live there. Such an empty place; so vague.Just a country where the thunder goes and things disappear."
Holly from "Breakfast at Tiffany's - Truman Capote
Unbounded, immeasurable is the sky
where I whisper secrets, fling dreams,
have done so ever since I was a little girl
who, with far-reaching loneliness
looked to the clouds for comfort,
at times for assumption.
When will I learn to trust boundless love,
accept you won't rumble discontent,
criticize; realize there is no need
to hold my breath or hide?
Here, by your side is a home
that will never be empty, a love
that will never threaten nor disappear.

This is for Imaginary Garden with Real Toads "Play it Again, Toads #3". I selected the archived challenge "The Story' - select a quote from "Breakfast at Tiffany's and write a poem in any form or style which explore the thoughts which arise.
When I was a young girl and teenager I adored the old movies and loved to read - often outside beneath the clouds with my beloved cat. Over two years ago I wrote a poem "A Summer's Breeze". I was quite shy and well, I had low self-esteem for one reason or another. I remember often holding my breath - if I was scared, embarrassed, shy… I truly have buried my insecurities, but at times "she" does reappear - funny how we resurrect our past at times…
