the take off

the engines screamed.
agonizing.
i heard them.

the rubber scarred the runway.
blistering.
i felt the pain.

the pain of letting go;
of meaningless longing.
to stop.
to return.

the trees are running;
faster, faster.
the mountains flying;
higher,higher.
then,
they can rise no more.

suddenly,
what i know
becomes
what i knew.

It seems this took birth in its first form while you were taking off from the Seeb airport. But the line "...pain of letting go;
of meaningless longing..." caught most of my attention. As it put me to wonder whether you were viewing this whole thing in two different perspectives - of sadness or that of understanding. Or maybe you were feeling both.
