Fear of Falling

Kim 2-18-13 at 10.27 AM ... Fear of Falling

Fear of Falling… Falling… Falling…
Despite an attitude of gratitude
Times occasionally
Elicit grief
Sadness
Want

Tears

Cling
To lower lid
Hovering just above
Cheek exerting every cell
To avoid falling, falling, falling

Is
this
why I
harbor a
fear of falling?

    Sometimes, despite an attitude of gratitude, something happens in life that makes the tears want to fall, fall, fall. And probably the best thing is …… to let them!

    The parallel of the tear is stunningly creative. I’m rather jealous (in a good way). Fine poetry once again, from line length to tone to constraint.
