Hold You There

Weightless
And it takes your breath away
Just before dropping
You dare to hold on
The rush of wind in your lungs
Freeing you from yourself
Letting it all go
Utterly alive
Utterly terrified
And flying
Feeling your heart flutter and race
As you plunge in the wonder of this vast abyss
The sparkling deep blue
Flowing up and down
Together and forever
Over and under
Sharing you there
Swooping, diving
I’ll hold you there
In the embrace of the night sky
Your spirit elevated
As light as a tear
I’ll hold you there
In our one and only time here

Electric Veins

 Here in her videogame blanket she rides the wind
Electric guitar strings wiring her brain
Pink hair soaking
Clouds moving, skin glowing
Adventure in everything

Racing in the rain, a ride through the city
Speed in her dance, a fire across the world
She rises and falls, an epic wave slays
She flies

Skies beget her, trickling stardust and thunder
Never ending sky, so high the horizon she climbs
Thunder stomps across the atmosphere
Making way at the speed of light
Senses sharpen
The world opens up to her
Empty space surrounds
She can do anything

She steadies her eyes
Focused, determined
Burning

She cranks into high gear

Fire spills, dropping out of the sky
Dodging effortlessly
She swims and soars, ducks and swerves
Flowing on the edge so easily

Burning

A smile curls in the midst of life and death
On the edge of her mortality
So alive, she’s breathing every moment
Surfing on the waves of her experience, her seconds
Her near misses
Surfing on the edge of immortality
Never feeling her superpowers
Glowing and growing like this before

She dives again
Nothing can stop her
Effortlessly daring
Intuition overpowering
Letting go
Somehow she knows

She jumps

Catching onto a snaking dragon
Flying
Together, roaring across the sky
The moon rises
She can touch its light
Smooth and cool
They slither to and thro
Moonbeams flickering
She feels them soaking in
Gliding into her electric veins
Moonbeams pumping
Soothing her restless heart
And its ceaseless desire for speed
And immortality
