to be the one who says good bye to the cells
dropping down a slippery throat
letting go of a now stranger world--
taking flight into the sky
and all the while wondering why
you hadn't taken this trip before.

i've lost myself before
in this world of yours
exploring the friendly skies
which might not be so vast
if i could just go with you.

Totally NOT what I was expecting, but 100% better. :)

Ooo, I like this, especially the last stanza. There is a slight confusion (in a good way!) in the beginning, if that makes any sense at all, and it all resolves itself :)

Vivid imagery! Very symbolic. Definitely for the reader's imagination and interpretation! Neat illustration.

That last stanza is so simple & economical...yet oh so powerful.
