Magic Horse

White Unicorn

I drew you a picture

Of the melting moonlight

Into water

A wave

Its mane tossing over.

I found my courage.


If you knew the sadness flowing

The deep fear

beneath these pictures

Would you still look at them the same

Would you smile fondly at the expression

Sigh at the potential of memories

With all the truth of a lit stage

As attainable as Pegasus seemed to a child

Who looked for him daily in the sky,

but only found Orion

His life lost in the waters of pride,

loved enough to earn him a place in the heavens

I am here, just through the wall

Pressing myself into the blue brickwork

As if with enough will I can pass through

Fall into your arms

But I know

You’re holding someone else in your pictures

Sending kisses

And starry eyed messages

Was I here to just fall forever, wingless?

Do I live still, a constellation in your shifting skies?

Forever a magic horse

Powerless to grant anyone wishes.

About the Creator

Elsa Michaela | @surfthought

When you hear a song

One that stops you in your tracks

That seems spoken from your own mind

Do you listen and listen again?

Follow its streams until a tide,

Inside you

Rushes to fill in the small hollow parts

…Yeah, me too
