finding home

riding home through scarlet skies

legs ache.
heart beats.
air sucked.
peddles pumped.

grey clouds haunt me from behind
crimson clouds hypnotize my mind in front
and planet earth is new to me this night.

i feel flight as i soar down mountains
i feel ache as I burn up hills.

my fight and flight become one
as thunder rolls up my back
and lighting falls like rain.

adrenaline swims through me as body reaches for home

one drop
five drops
the heavens open and I am drenched

water touches my skin and drips through my gasping lips

my skin is freezing
my core is burning

air sucked
air found
I am alive.
