    My life fell,
    crumbled all
    around me
    faster than I
    could ever attempt
    to catch it.

    Desperately, I tried
    to prevent it
    from happening,
    but I was
    overwhelmed
    by the velocity
    of my fall.

    I ran, stumbled,
    got back up
    only to fall
    back down again
    further than
    I had come.

    Piece by piece
    my life fell.
    The severity
    of devastation,
    I never saw coming.

    Bitter, cold, empty
    my life's fall
    has left me,
    yet determined
    to put it all back
    together again
    and discover what
    this life is for.
