Falling (poem)

Falling

The higher I rise the further I fall
There was a time I reached for the sky
I rose up high
Now it feels like I’ve been falling all my life

That little voice
Watching those little dreams
The feeling opened me
Broke through my armor and let me breathe

And now it hurts to be this free
Taken from me,
Can’t close the armor around me
I left it all behind

Now I’m falling from the sky
I used to hum for little ears at night
Now I’m a stranger in those little eyes
Too many tears to let outside

Broken, I am broken deep inside
Paid the price to feel alive
Wouldn’t go back, I don’t know why
I guess I can’t regret those times

So I fall from the sky
I don’t know why
I can’t stop trying to fly
Reaching for the sun at night

I can still feel the tiny hands
Still hear the tiny laugh
Still feel that little breath
Sleeping on my chest

The higher I rise the further I fall
There was a time I reached for the sky
I rose up high
Now it feels like I’ve been falling all my life
