2. sending the hurt to the heavens.

Furillen a place I love where I feel safe to be a child again while I fly my kites.

 

 

“A kite is a victim you are sure of.

You love it because it pulls

gentle enough to call you master,

strong enough to call you fool;

because it lives like a desperate trained falcon in the high sweet air,

and you can always haul it down to tame it in your drawer.

 

A kite is a fish you have already caught in a pool where no fish come,

so you play him carefully and long,

and hope he won't give up,

or the wind die down.

 

A kite is the last poem you've written

so you give it to the wind,

but you don't let it go

until someone finds you

something else to do.”

 

― Leonard Cohen, The Spice Box of Earth
