Today I am Icarus
Heart of wings and mind of freedom
Soaring up to the heavens
Like God’s treasured angels
Almost touching the sun and stars
Tips of feathered fingers caressing gentle clouds
Floating on dreams and fantasies
I am lifted up
Wind blowing like the breath flowing
In my lungs
I stroke the warm sun
And unexpectedly I fall
Blissfully into the cool ocean
Blue waves sweeping over my head
Enveloping me
Embracing me
Sun still shining through the thin film
Happiness reflecting like a mirror
As all mortal troubles melt away

I’m really into Greek mythology, and I started writing a series of poems on Greek mythology. If you think it’s a good series, let me know! I hope you like it!

This reminds me of the song Icarus by Bastille/ the British group who sings Pompeii and Things We Lost In The Fire. :D awesome poetry.
