via Daily Prompt: Float

The closest I will ever be
to experiencing zero gravity
is when I’m in float therapy.
It lifts more than my behind.

There my fat no longer binds;
Epsom salt fills chunky lines,
arms, legs, torso, and my mind.
I just wasn’t expecting the tears.

No surprise that lying here
reminds me that for several years
the lake was an escape from my fears.
And now peace washes over me.

Funny how life can be
when you truly set yourself free.
Its pretty heavy being weightless me.
It’s another world when you float.
