In autopilot


The world around me

From the front row

I see fog


surrounding me


Air pressure drops

I feel light

In the clouds

I float

Just enough time

to look around


That no one

Has offered

Any peanuts

On this flight

I am alone

My body


Dragging me down


Unable to move

Or think

Panic sets in

Tears flood

Oxygen masks

Release above

I gasp

Trying desperately

To catch my breath

Staying grounded

As I crash

Breathing in

And out

No one


To help


I am forced

To let go

Back into the clouds

I float

And continue to watch

From a distance

As my body

Lies there lifeless

Awaiting the crash

That never came.
