Falling

FallingThere are so many ways to fall,
don’t you think?

An unexpected moment,
an unlikely trip,

a light stumble
into an uncertain space,

a sudden headlong aching
pitching you into a void
you didn’t know was there,

a twirling, whirling spin
into a new reality
you never thought you’d want,

landing you in a place
where common sense
would never lead you,

a falling you can’t resist
despite your best intent,
once the descent begins.

    I like this one CJ. It’s kinda weird because the more I read it the better I like it. I usually read them at least a couple of times. I process it better that way.
