Falling for Icarus

Falling for Icarus

A Poem by Neville
"

its just one of them things I've been itchin to try... fly that is.. sorry fella's

"

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

Poor Icarus flying too close to the sun. He had a long way to fall. Falling in love is easy for some, not for others. You can fly without wings. I do, frequently. I soar in the thermals of my mind. And I will stop there. Your little piece of brevity has so much between the lines, I am I danger.... of writing a book :)

Shocking! What would Daedalus say?! Seriously though, very enjoyable. Irreverent and relevant. Perfect.

I think one might do better to attach those feathers with some epoxy. This makes me smile.

Icarus was just misunderstood. He had a moth complex and was most likely Scottish and really called Eckarus... Because we so rarely see the sun, we all gather and make ooh and aah sounds, whilst pointing at the sky ball fire thingy. Trying to fly to it is more common than you think up here.
It ain't the flying that kills ya, it's the extreme stop at the end where terminal velocity is introduced to pavement 😀

Love is a lesson in burning. But that doesn’t stop man like Icarus, from trying to go nearer to it. No wonder the falling is inevitable always.

a grave subject indeed …. N :)
flying too close to love...maybe all that plumage might lessen the burn a little...
but as Butch Cassidy said..."hell, the fall will kill you"---
