The Dandelion Wish From the Universe

I am caught right now
An elevator between two floors.
With a breath caught in my throat,
I feel something, but…
But I’ve blown it into a balloon
And tied it closed.
Now, I tow it behind me,
On a string.
With the others,
Many, many others.
If you could see it,
One person, dragging behind,
Thousands of balloons!
You would marvel,
You would laugh,
But you might also feel sad.
Sometimes, it seems like
Being stuck is not up to me
It is instead the waiting,
For the breath of the Universe
To blow and make its wish,
For me to feel.
