Falling

I’ve done it again

I jumped, trying to fly

Only to find myself plummeting

Falling into life and its crooked ways

 

I’ve been in constant descent since I was kid

Maybe even longer

I fall for everything

And damn it, it feels good all the way down

 

Sweet talk giving color to my cheeks

Lies that turn into broken promises

Humans that love only themselves

Ironically, I’m one of them

Temptation because yes, please, I want it badly

Love when it tastes like freedom

Hearts too pretty to pass up

Souls that match my own

Words as real as death

The magic of being lost in nature

Wishes that never come true

Cravings I can’t quite satisfy alone

Dreams that leave me wanting

A touch to make me tremble

Soft lips I can’t resist

A charming wink to melt for

A stare that strikes me down with eyes that draw me in

Smiles that steal my heart, ready to break it

 

All these things leave me weak

They give me false wings

For a chance to destroy myself

And those around me

But no matter the cost

I’ll never stop falling

    • Wow, thank you so much for your kind words! I’m so happy you enjoy it so far. I was just looking through your page too and I finished the sad story describing the deaths of your great grandmother and her newborn baby. You are a beautiful soul with a strong voice and I look forward to reading more of your words.

  1. It’s bound to happen.

    If one wishes to fly and soar like Icarus, then one is bound to fall.

    For it is to fly and try to ascend to the stars that makes life worth living.

    If one does not fly, one will not fall.

    But then sadly, one won’t have lived at all.
