Falling

Dedicated to my parents

 

On days when the clouds cry

To express my wordless anguish

When drops of the sun’s heat

Suck my entire being dry,

I fall into your smile

And remember what it is like to be happy.

 

On days when every slight word

Makes me bleed crimson pain

When the shallow pools around me

Turn my mind into an ugly brown,

I fall into your acceptance

And feel I can breathe again.

 

On days when my laughter

Rings of choked sorrows

When every breath I take

Scratches like dead leaves

I fall into your arms

And life surges into my corpse.

 

On days when an inaudible gasp

Signals my heart breaking quietly

When life loses its music and. 

Haunts with its cruel silence,

I fall into you

And know that I’m never alone.
