Can you feel that?
That tickle?
Stars floating in front of your eyes,
Shot down from the October night sky
Falling

Falling



Falling
Sinking
Sinking
Sinking

Can you feel that?
That dread in your stomach
As you fall
Down
Down
Down
Twenty seconds that's all it took
Oxygen masks dangle like chandeliers
They sparkle in the emergency glow
Brace! Brace! Brace for impact!
We're going down! Brace for impact!
Mothers crying, children hiding, the man…
The man who was scowling earlier,
He's preying.
Hot liquid is running down our cheeks,
But no words come out, we cannot speak
Do you feel that?
The burn of the cold un-loving water?
Does it try to embrace you?
Does it try to invite you to its home?
Promising warmth, peace, and safety?
The water is turning icy; it's full of pointy needles.
I'm feeling heavy are you?
Are your lungs burning like mine?
Can you feel that?
The tickle of your last air bubbles running up your frozen face?
Do you regret anything? Like me?
Stealing that cookie from your brother, or not listening to your mother?
Sinking
Sinking
Sinking
My hopes and dreams come with me.
Sinking
Sinking
Sinking.
