When You Are Falling…

When you are falling
into that hole
that dark place

you know the one
you’ve built it yourself
you’ve darkened it
you’ve dug it deep

and deeper still

and you are falling fast…

You are trying not to
You are reaching for the edges
can’t quite grasp

You are screaming for help
but the words
won’t leave your mouth

You feel yourself fall
and you are afraid
you don’t want to go there

your chest tightens
your heart beats
before you know it
the ground is gone from under
your feet

and alone
you weep
