It starts as a flutter, as light as a butterfly, Then I start floating, detached and free. But as the tingling spreads through me, And I recognize this feeling, It is as if this body doesn’t belong to me. Now all my senses are fading, All sound is far away. My heart is rapidly racing, And my mind is unclear. I identify with this feeling, And it is the feeling of fear! This aura is my warning, One I must always heed, This aura is my emergency alert, It gives me the time that I need. I will prepare for my landing, As a pilot and his plane. My landing point is crucial, Wherever I land I will feel no shame. It starts as a flutter ,as light as a butterfly, But it ends in a crash landing. As the plane falls from the sky, I look for a safe place to land. My aura is the instrument panel, Telling me not to continue to stand. It may start as a flutter, as light as a butterfly, I may start floating detached and free. But this aura is my warning, That I must protect me. I am the pilot, my body is the plane.
