the gapanese invasion is nigh!

uphill (for y***)

one eve, rest-
less beneath the icy shadows,
i saw you amongst the clouds,
flashing your smile of invitation.
i recognized my salve,
and no pegasus to ride on skyward,
i scaled this snowy mountain
with bare fingers and feet,
frostbites be damned.
all these palms begged
was to touch your visage--
the elixir to heal my angry sores.
up, up i endured
to survive the top of the world
but at the speed of light,
your image swirled
out of reach of hands.
the earth's crest
and the sea level
harbor no difference
for the higher i ascended,
the farther away your drifted.
