I am not good


I am not good

at falling

I tense up,

every muscle in my body

a protest

as I try to stop the inevitable

try to control

the uncontrollable


I’ve never been good

at falling

though God knows

I’ve fallen

more than enough times

I just can’t seem to learn

how to trust gravity

so implicitly

that I’ll let her hold me in her arms


I am not good

at falling

but then I’ve never fallen


like you


- please catch me



the simplicity is beautiful 


thank you so much!!
