(or How I Fell to Earth)

Soaring over the planet
Light speed sensations

Flipping, tumbling
Riding the wind

Falling prostrate through clouds
So opaque and pliant

Losing my wings
With each second

Forbidden emissary
Of the heavens

Tripping through the sunlight

Spiraling carelessly
Wanting to know

Feeling a need:
What is it for?

Giving it all up for mortality
