Falling Down

By , Ft Worth, TX
Falling
falling into
a deep dark hole.
Nowhere to run.
Nowhere to go.
Only one way:

down.

Arms flailing
tumbling, turning,
plummeting churning.
No way out.
No way in.
Only one way:

down.

Can’t think,
breathe,
see,
No way to stop.
No way to start.
Only one way:

down.

Frustrated
Angry
Falling down,

down.
No way to think or pray
Only one way:

down.

Never stopping,

down, down.
Never starting,

down, down.
Can’t go up,

down, down.
No way out,

down, down.

Must breathe

Must think


Must see

Can’t.
Must know

Must pray


Must cry

Can’t.

Arms flailing
Never stopping

down, down.
Legs tumbling
Never pausing

down, down.
Eyes blind
Cannot see

down, down.

Black around
Nothing below
Nothing above.
Only falling,
nothing else

down, down.
Only one way:

down

Air whipping

No forgiveness.
Only down,

No vengeance.

Always in the back of my head
That picture
What picture?
That picture
ever loyal,
ever soulful
Picture gone, No!

That was when I started falling

That was when I couldn’t think
couldn’t breathe
only cry
only fall
Wallow in my own sorrow
Mine and one other’s
The other never tells
never lies
never talks
only cries

Never can she come back
Never, never, down, down.

fall, fall,
That loyal, soulful picture in my head

Never to be seen again.

No, not true, not true, cannot be!

Always watching, always waiting

For her to come back again,


but never, never will she



come and I will only fall, fall,




down,




down.
