lifted on impact

clouds scraped valleys at the solar eclipse of emotional pain at the abyss she loosened the brakes of her mental wheelchair there were no more strings attached to the wheel of life turning neither safety net nor double bottom only a clown’s lost smile in the howling wind her own pantomime dispersed vacant echoes waned Icarus’ molten wings in repercussions of hysterical laughter showered a dripping soul with storms hailing a moribund future but the comical comet refused to fall to long dead sparkling stars thunder rocked and rolled her at the pinnacle of hopeful demise drenched an anticipation of dream shattered failure and descent until a single drop of rain scratched blindsight into trickling vision when she rattled bolting nuts to proceed on her journey she slipped up down went her invalid carriage and crushed on impacted parting sent sparks up the cliff and fired resolve as she clung to the edge with void’s teeth and nails she lost grip of her immanent coffin paralysis had strengthened her forearm and upwards she climbed with a stream lubricant shed from her eyes in view of imposed defeat she oiled her Karma and decided to come back on dolphin’s wings if she could win over destiny she would make up her own animation surprised and startled by an eagle she noticed she was able to walk 25th September 2020
