Pillars in the Sky

pillars in the sky poem by steven james humphreys

sky pillars

floating islands

upside down

my thoughts came to be

things materialized

before my eyes

what I wanted was

created in a bright flash

I flew through the air

at the speed of thought

to the end of the universe

and back

I wanted to have no more

than this

until suddenly

I began to care for others more

than me.

I realized that since I could

now have anything I wanted

simply by thinking it into


that real love was

being sorry for

the wrongful things I’d

done in life


I didn’t do the right

things I should
