Flying

Wind blowing,

Whistling in my ears,

As it tousles my hair.

Feet leave the ground

Soaring higher,

And lower.

Adrenaline coursing through my veins.

Eyes shut,

but still seeing everything.

I should be afraid,

But I am alive,

Free.

Never stop…


Brakes,

The roller coaster

Sliding into an abrupt halt.

I stepped off.

Trembling.

I had flown.
