Every time I see.

I'm still in my first fall.
Only, the hole is deeper.
I can't get out of this fall.
I let it swallow me completely.

Every time I fall.

I don't like falling.
But when I fall, it feels good.
Until, I hit my next bottom.
And I feel exactly the same when I fall again.

Every time I see.

It's a curse.
Every time my eyes set I fall deep.
No matter what,it never fails.
Just sends me further down.

Every time I fall.

I know what I'm falling for every single time.
Falling inside,until I never touch the ground.
When I stop landing,I'll know why.
When you finally accept me in your life.
