Arrived in Melbourne after a pretty smooth flight, though I still hate the descent into Tullamarine. Hope the return is as good or better.
The skies, they are totally clear
But then, so is my fear
I feel a breeze
An evil tease
In my head, screams do I hear.
That hole deep in my gut
The eyes that are tightly shut
A horrible nightmare
That only I care
Others think I’m just a nut.
The silver that I am off to seek
Is only a sign I am weak
Flying in error
Feeling the terror
Counting myself among the meek.
Trying to be brave enough to fly
I’m scared and I don’t know why
What lies ahead
Are lies in my head
I just want to curl up and cry.
The holiday is done. All back home now, including doggy. Quite a bumpy flight until we were off the coast of Australia. Saw meteors, other aircraft, a green laser over PNG and watched “The Abyss”. Lots of rain clouds over Sydney, though the threatened bumps didn’t really eventuate.
Need a shower, sleep and food now.
