Head in the clouds – A poem

Look at us, small people, small hands,
With brains bigger than the sky.

Painted on the back of my eyelids is an outstretched hand,
Promise hidden in every second glance, every smile, and
My heart is in the clouds while my feet are on the ground.
If only I could pull them back together somehow –
