Question: Would you give your interpretation of this poem!?

heart drops
eyes close
gravity unbound
not breathing
nor forgeting
lost conscious
no control
out of mind
out of body
bliss arrives
blessed escape

Best Answer - Chosen by Asker:
Swooning, or fainting, can be very close to death because your body is no longer in your control!. As you go down, your mind could interpret a sense of death, hence the OBE (out of body), which you might actually experience!. Drifting into sleep such as this could easily be akin to death!. Blessed escape seems to relate to death as one senses bliss arrive; but one could also be floating -- perhaps over the freeway or ocean on a journey of it's own; the body is not dead, the soul is simply free to fly!.

Great poem!. Many interpretations; a poem that draws me back to it again and again!.


Some parts of the poem is about love!.
for example eyes closing this could be a kiss
The first part of the poem about relaxing
also floating!.
however the not breathing can be about death!.
For lines like out of mind, no control
it may be about going insane!.
Spinning can refer to being dizzy


To me it sounds as though someone under a lot of stress (either emotional or even physical) has passed out/fainted!.
This is a very close description to the symptoms one experiences when that happens!.
I won't go into the technical aspects of syncope but I will posit that it may simply be my background which has led me to this conclusion!.
And sometimes Ma!.!.!. fainting is bliss!.
I could feel it as I read through!.!.!. now I need to put my head between my knees for a bit!.!.
double sigh

It can only be the soul leaving the body!.!.!. it cannot be anything else!.

It is a very good poem!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

my first thought was being able to finally go to sleep, well, except for the not breathing part ; )Www@QuestionHome@Com

An out-of--body experience!? Death!? The moment before sleep!?
