PreTribute

"This is quite abrupt" she thought
She hadn't expected to do this amongst strangers
She always imagined doing it with the love of her life
She was not alone now, yet she longed for someone..
..someone not amongst the faces in the crowd around her

She let go of the cords that held her in place
Defeating even gravity, as she floated freely
Ticking off another item in her TODO list
even at such a serious moment

Everyone around her was crying, like sheep bleating
But she was calm and relaxed
She blitzkrieged through the 37 chapters of her story
It was a nice story, maybe her namesake would pen it down someday

The lights went out, she didn't care
There were two fluorescent nexuses lit up like fairies
She was swinging and swirling now,
The two fairies wound around her, wrapping her in a double helix

The fairies - they closing in,
She remembered the feeling and the logo of the place she used to work at.
But this was different, she felt warmth - not trapped
She felt content

Over the din, she heard the captain announce
"Ohhh Goddd.. May our souls rest in peace"
She was already at peace with herself
At 300 kmph, the waters of the pacific ocean are as hard as granite.
