Visiting Infinity

Backwards
Sudden velocity extreme and jolting
Suspense eating at my insides
Starting to reconsider
Where did this courage come from
What am I even doing here
Too late to back out
Fear spreading across the other faces
The door is rolled down to a close
It is settled
We are on our way
Disbelief sets in at four thousand
Only eight more to go
Instructions go in one ear and out the other
The door is opening
I am at the edge
I am leaning
I am falling
Far down
Endless
My heart skips a beat
But I catch my breath
Free
Infinite
Limitless
Weightless
Uncontainable
Parachute opens
Unrestricted
Peaceful
Soaring
Vast
Feet outstretched
Touch down gracefully
Look up through the clouds
Wondering when I can revisit that sky
