No Words

i'd try to write a poem that
talks about the long flight up where i sat
squashed among three guys
climbing up into the sky
i'd try to describe
the thrill at the end of the ride
when the plane opened up
to prepare for the drop
i'd try to explain the jump or fall
that brought my face against the wall
of wind on my body and mouth and eyes
the newly exhilarating view of the skies
i'd try to let you know
about how it felt when all was slowed
and the peace of the air
took away every care
i'd try to write a poem
so you'd at least know
how it felt on the ground
with only the sound
of my beating chest
never to rest
but there are no words
no words
no words
