April 4

falling and falling
through panes of glass
that feel like clouds
so quickly they pass

I close my eyes
to bypass regret
of words left trapped
in fields of net

a quick descent
and crash I seek
but the long decline
just proves I’m weak

my shoulders down
my head hung low
absorbing the shards
every stinging blow

I wait for the calm
that may come about
beyond this journey
without such doubt

until that day
that let’s me be
the solace I beg
lies only in me
