The Disappearance of a Dreamer

She chose to walk alone
Though others wondered why
They refused to look before her
Her eyes cast upward, toward the sky
She didn't have companions
No need for earthly things
She only wanted freedom
From what she felt were puppet strings
She longed to be a bird
That she might fly away
She pitied every blade of grass
For planted they would stay
She longed to be a flame
That brightly danced alone
She felt jealous of the steam
That made the air its only home
Some say she wished too hard
Some say she wished too long
But when they tried to find her, they saw that she was gone
They say the trees stood witness, the sky refused to tell
But the only someone who had seen it
Said the whole thing played out well
She spread her arms out wide
Breathed in the break of dawn
She just let go of all she had
And then, she was gone.
