Free Verse – Releasing Balloons

Releasing Balloons

It’s quite simple, our lives.
Like an oval balloon.
Filled with helium, filled with noise.
Some like to think it’s more.
Some fill it with things that are sharp,
black, dark objects that can pierce souls.
While others, soft pieces of heart,
colored with brilliance.
I like stuffing words into balloons.
Filling it till it almost burst.
And when it does
Laughter releases into the air.
