I once wore wings

I could fly
With wings upon the winds rising
At one time I was high above the world below
I saw what others could only imagine
And I fell from that high place
Fell below the horizon
Into the ocean beneath
The salt water I could taste
Through my broken mouth
Through my broken body
I could fly
And then I reached too far
Entropy claimed me
From the high place
And before I could understand
I embraced my fate
And let my wings fade
