Look Out!

Falling

Tumbling

Through the air

Wondering

What it’s like

Down there

People standing

With faces aghast

Yet I don’t care

As I breathe my last

Hail Mary

You’d think
now I
have more
time on
my hands

I’d be
thinking
about the
future and
making plans

Yet I
sit here
dwelling on
that one
transgression

Knowing
it’s too
late now
give my
confession

Scissors

It’s time
to put you
back in
your box

To fasten
the lid
and change
the locks

I cannot
continue
down this
path

For if I
do there
is no way
back
