Letting Go - Balloon Personification Poem @ dreambeastpoems.com

Letting Go

This bunch, they never liked me

A balloon alone, left out

Too big and pink and heart-shaped

Too afraid to bob about

 

But one day at the fairground

Feeling overblown and fat

I saw a human pointing

At our drifting habitat

 

So, wobbling with excitement

Bullies barged me out of sight

Pick me!” they helium-squeaked

As they dreamed of taking flight

 

But then I feel a tugging

I descend and see a grin

A boy named Javi laughs

at his reflection in my skin

 

Pathetic, useless gasbag!

Hissed the fading, fuming gang

I'm going to let you go now,

the boy looked up and sang

 

His tiny fingers opened

And I watched him disappear

And I never want to come down

For I feel so free up here
