my body stopped moving and quickly got cold
i made my escape through exhaling lungs
and watched my body rot
away

nobody noticed my misty escape.
and I ended up floating like water in the air
to the glowy ocean side above the pounding of waves
that's where you showed up on the foggiest day.

from high above you
I saw your earthling body wrapped in wool
the glow surrounds you
and when you breathed in I felt the pull.

    General Comment"nobody noticed my misty escape.
    and i ended up floating like water in the air." vvv

    is like
    in dan price's book 'radical simplicity' [like walden]:

    "My intention, as I say in the book, was to 'honor our sacred earth by becoming so small, so quiet, and so unsubstantial that the environment...feels barely a whisper of my miniscule existence....In this way nature is free to express itself fully while I try to comprehend and appreciate its vast universal rhythms.'"
