Free Verse, Poetry by Sarah

Lasso The Sun

Lasso the sun?
If only I could
I’d make you stay
If only you would

You captured my heart
But not mine you
A one way river
A dried up slew

I wanted to trap you
Encase you in stone
Secret you away
As mine alone

But you shine brightly
As only I dare
My eyes avert yours
An imperfect pair

I”m left in a wasteland
Of my own making
Lessons learned from
Giving not taking

Now I turn my back
And let you be
You’re just too elusive
This I can see

I’ll admire from afar
Bask only in your light
Lasso the sun?
One day, I might…

  1. Lovely poem Sarah. I think the sun lasooed me last night as I seemed to be taken up into the most beautiful sunset and the pinky red was bathing me! Lovely.
