The Fall

I’m falling

My face

Breath is leaving

.

As wind pushes

I’m scared

Mouth and jaw

Open

Hanging

.

I have the need

To scream

Mouth open

No words come out

.

It’s

All over

My life

In ribbons

Hitting my body

Like knives

Shredding

What I have left

.

It was my plan

To come

To walk

To stand

To fall

 .

Yet now

As I plummet

I realize

What life

Could have been

What the things

Flaking off my being are

Rocketing

Away from me

As I step on

The last concrete block

Of the sidewalk
