Now imagine being thrown from a cliff. No, I wasn’t on a cliff.
Imagine standing on a cliff gazing into the distance and the view is a representation of your thoughts and dreams of what could be, feeling freedom and clarity, then the feeling of being thrown from that cliff is your life and everything you believed in being shattered. The comparison of his feelings to being on a plane and a cliff could be the comparison of how love can make us feel free, floating on air yet being at such a height makes us feel vulnerable and falling from such a height is the deepest pain anybody could feel. Unrequited love
