and he smiled
with a mouthful of bloody teeth
(and he fell from the sky to join the ocean’s roar)

and he laughed
with his wings beginning to melt
(and the was seared his skin to forever display his pride)

and his eyes sparkled
with tears ripped from his eyes
(and his father cried from above to see his son fall)

and he watched the sun shrink
(as his father watched his son shrink)

and Icarus fell
with his arms reaching
(and he began to realize that reaching the sun wasn’t what he thought it would be)
