Flight of Icarus

There is an unexpected beauty

to the unraveling

freedom in becoming

boneless

shapeless

unmoored

untethered

to here

to now

Feel like my soul

could explode out of my chest

in an explosion of light

Could fly

could soar

reach for the heavens

the sun like

Icarus

before the wax melts

and I return to the tumbling

freefall

praying that I lose

consciousness

before I slam into

the ground

broken
