Aerial

A Poem By Sarah // 2/25/2008

Soaring, flying,

gliding on the wings of the wind.



Rising higher,

than the very clouds.



Wind rushing,

ruffling my hair.



I scream,

ecstatic, turning downwards;



Free-falling,

for hundreds of feet;



Pulling up

at the last second,



Flying.



Whipping around pinnacles of rock,

tall spires reaching dead, frozen arms,

far up into the sky.



The thrill!

The adventure!

The joy!

It’s indescribable!



I hear a sharp sound,

jolting me suddenly.



I reluctantly fall to earth,

my wings being clipped.



Shackles,

I cannot escape from drag me down.



I open my tearstained eyes,

reality appears before my eyes.



I reach longingly for my fantasy,

disappearing before my eyes.



Imagination has but one flaw,

Before reality it cannot survive.

This made me want to cry though I'm not sure why! :) I love this because it's seperated like a poem though it doesn't rhyme! I like this very mush as I do want to fly...by I don't want to fall! :) I like the ending where you wrote: Imagination has one flaw/before reality it cannot survive.

Thanks, I love to write about flying, though I often find it difficult to put on paper how much I love it.
As I said, it's indescribable.

I love the IDEA of flying (not on a plane of course), but I'm not sure how well I would actually like it, I'm terribly afraid of heights.... Or at least falling from heights.

Nicely done!

I love the thought of flight, as well. (not too keen on hights though). Ofcourse, if you have read my bio, you already know that that is my future; flying planes, that is.

i know!
whenever i have a dream i'm flying, i almost
cry when I wake up!
I love it so much, i can't bear it when i have to come back to earht!
Whether it's in an airplane, or my imagination.
Sadly, it's usually imagination and not real life.
