how would it feel to fly

how would it feel to fly

I imagine flying feels much like dying
you are leaving earthbound things behind

I imagine flying feels like swimming but with less resistance and more blissed-out-ed-ness than we normally experience

I imagine flying is a feeling of one’s breath being sucked in and held, while tummies are doing somersaults, I imagine it feels like blending in

I imagine flying is a feeling of weightlessness and painlessness and all that pre-emptive bitterness and lost-ed-ness we might have felt is gone

I imagine flying is a feeling of wholesomeness and roundedness, the nearestness to perfection we can find

I imagine flying feels like being loved by the whole universe all at once and singing every rhyme in tune and in perfect time

I imagine flying must feel like the flowers all swaying and the world’s hearts and minds being all synchronised and harmonised.

I imagine flying would feel like the bliss of freedom
times two billion million seed pods squared and scattered.

I imagine that flying could feel like the brokenhearted being mended by just sailing through the clear, thin, unconstrained air itself.
