Falling

FALLING

Proteem Bhaduri

We fell,

Like unseasonal rain,

Like staccato hail,

Like an avalanche of snow

Like angry waves on a hapless shore

Like a runaway meteor,

Like libido on ice

Like heavy sighs,

Like artificial highs,

Like capricious dice,

Like winter’s chill,

Like a junkie’s will

 

We fell,

With no harness,

With no handhold,

With no chute,

With no balancing pole,

With no wings,

With no faith,

With no poise,

With no grace,

With no end in sight,

With no respite

 

We fell,

Inevitably,

Irrevocably,

Irresistibly,

Impulsively,

Impatiently

 

We fell,

Into each other,

We fell,

Together,

We fell.

Forever,

And no fall has ever been better
