i'm falling
my eyes closed
thrashing like an animal
i can't feel my limbs

i open my mouth to scream
but no sound comes out
i brace for impact
dread seeping through me

but you swoop from the heavens
large white wings spanning
arms circle my waist
and i’m no longer falling

with a hand on my heart
a smile and a glint in your eye
you whisper in my ear
"i've got you now”
the first time i've actually sat down to write something... vajkdsv... i spent way too long on this so you can have it now.... :(

how is everyone faring during the holidays? i hope you're all well <3

    oh this is so sweet but also beautiful and like haunting? i've felt like this... still feel like this sometimes. i want to quote the part both f'otter and paisley did, but they beat me to it! love this... so emotional. and i'm faring good, i think? you know, school. then homework. and maybe some sleep. and then all over again! no, but it's okay. and you?
    well fairwinds!
    re: aww, thank you so much in advance!

    "with a hand on my heart / a smile and a glint in your eye / you whisper in my ear / "i've got you now”" woah this is just such a brilliant, breathtaking end to this poem! i love the way it shifts, from panicking before and then relief. this is beautiful, dear! <333 i love your writing so much!

    large white wings spanning
    arms circle my waist" this is GREAT!!! and im doing well during the holidays, assuming i can get out of this semester of school in one piece :I Hope you're well too :)
