Feeling So High …

by Kate Rodenmeyer

deprived of oxygen
and any feeling of
life. A jolt of electricity
pierces the sky and
the wings break like
a fallen angel …
there is nothing after this.
A blinding white light
shines, but is unlike heaven.
An impact crushes my
heart and squeezes out
every bit of life left in
my body. A silence …

I wake up now and I am
alone on this plane. Darkness.
