Falling: A Reflection on Lost Connections

falling - Spectre of the Brocken

Remember the days when we shared a connection? 

Yup, I sensed you were aware. 

I drifted momentarily from reality, 

just three days, 

just long enough for her to exit stage left.

I found myself a character in my play. 

An exhausting drama. Filled with weariness. 

Action is yelled, and I pack my bags, 

now feeling washed up as an impostor.

Act II reveals stories left untold, 

where brutal honesty will most definitely falter. 

I have paid my dues to this stage ten times over.

Yet here I am, 

still calling and falling for love.

Falling: You can find this story in the collection “Spectre of the Brocken: Halo for the Observer.”
