Neville

Falling for Icarus

 

Falling for Icarus

It was all too easy
Falling in love I mean..

Just look at
those shoulders man

And since he dumped
the excess plumage

Sshh babe, I feel
I might just somehow fly

    Like the racing driver who swerved to avoid a child and fell out of bed i sense someone flying too close to a son here.

      Flying too near the sun whatever the reason results in melt-down where love drowns -- a comforting last line shows someone has reached out with understanding. This write touches the heart Nev.

        I told him to stay about 93 million miles away from that sun (distance Earth to Sun) but he never listened! lol.
