Falling Off …

 

I am not who once I was, I am
no longer who my parents love
I was something more, am now
but a shattering shadow that
un-dis-similar to those alive
has no more ability to stand
than a cardboard-cut-out man
the life that once sustained
me has gone, I am left alone
clutched against this barren
rock, uncaring if I stay or fall
