Falling Off …

 

I am not who once I was, I am

no longer who my parents love

I was something more, am now

but a shattering shadow that

un-dis-similar to those alive

has no more ability to stand

than a cardboard-cut-out man

the life that once sustained

me has gone, I am left alone

clutched against this barren

rock, uncaring if I stay or fall

 


Falling Off ...
