You say fall
and I see jump
I think I’ve lost too much.
Seen too much
and my imagination broken
shattered into pieces after a long fall
from a frightening height
from which you jumped.

A permanent change
has come over me
never the same
now I see
friends hanging
instead of branches,
I see suffocation
in every bag.
Every vein a risk,
everything an end to it all.

Always in the background
forever following me around.
You say fall
I see jump.
I’ve definitely lost too much.


Every time I read fall I see jump. That’s just not right.
