If I should fall
I know that you would not be there
to catch me.
coming to understand this in a world
where I should be able to count on you
from almost everyone.
I stand apart
because I stand alone.
You are always letting me go.
You are always teaching me
that there are no ties that bind.
I am falling
and you just keep letting me.
I never imagined
I could know such a painful truth
