Swimming In The Air

When I was young,
I'd swim in the air
every night.
I don't know what happened,
but now I'm floored,
gravity has tamed me,
and the chains on my imagination
tighten every year.
I don't know what happened,
but I used to swim in the air
every night.

I would wade,
and kick my legs,
so as not to touch the ground.
I knew something bad would happen
If I were to hit it.
Well now I've done it, I've hit the floor,
and I'm stuck.
I don't swim through the air,
or fly through my youth anymore.
My mind has been gravitated,
and all I have left are memories.


The author's comments:
When I was a child, I used to have recurring dreams about flying. I vividly remember that it felt exactly like swimming in the air, but I could breath. I haven't had those dreams since.
