FALLING!

[written by Naana Joa Braso]
Up high on the tower
Arms stretched wide
Tiptoeing on the edge of the roof
Peace!

A little step in the air
Adventuring!
The gusty wind shows no mercy
Drags me down face first
Pause!

I am falling!
Falling so fast
No control whatsoever
Nothing to hold unto
Optimistic!

[falling as written by Arnold Adrian] 

Optimistic!
This fall is just flight in reverse
I sail on the opposing wind
Inhaling pollen grains and dust
My insides crash

Pulse!
The scars of my past
Still haunt me
My blood flows but
The heart breaks

Bliss!
My head in the clouds
Her memory in my mind
I have found another
Love so fresh and new

I am falling!
Falling so fast
No control whatsoever
A drowning man clutching at a straw

Love!
She’s everything beautiful
My  eyes shut to her kiss
Death is my liberation

    My heart soars whenever a piece of writing inspires someone to write
    you didn’t deviate from the concept and you brought a different perspective to the piece which i love so much
    i am blogging about this now
