I don't think I know what you mean
I haven't said a thing
I mean to me
Well that's where we differ.
I don't want to talk anymore. Every word betrays.
Every word turns its back
on all the things I say.
I kiss away all the thoughts that ravage you
caresses sweep the days cares from your form
I breathe your mouth in
Your worry gets my lungs
Your anxiety wears my skin
I turn my mind upside down to empty out your terror, but I'll fall forever back on my heels.
I step back in time to catch myself
I step backward
just in time to see myself fall
I always thought I fell for you, but that's just me
That, I see, that's me
It was ever only me
falling rapidly toward myself and never reaching
flailing, never reaching
and like a dream
it's only the fall that feels real.
