Roller Coaster

The adrenaline builds.

Starting deep within,

Climbing and rising

until,

I begin to feel it.

Pupils dilating, hands shaking, mind racing…

And then,

All at once,

I fall.

 

I plummet into the deep unknown,

Turning and turning.

The excitement intensifies.

I begin to feel it expand,

Rising up from my lungs, my throat.

And finally,

A scream.

 

There is a moment,

A heart stopping moment,

Of weightlessness.

The world stops.

My thoughts, my actions, my universe,

All stops.

In this moment,

This minute or second,

I am alive.

This poem is about: 
Me
Our world
