Falling

It’s the nature of falling, really.

It’s why I’m so afraid of heights.
I get petrified by the distance between me and the ground.
For all that I am, all of my hopes and dreams
Would be worth nothing shattered against the concrete.
I build up my expectations every single time
I let my guard down and then I crash
Headfirst into the sidewalk. Every time.
This heart has tumbled haphazardly too many times
And this time faced its longest descent.

That’s the thing about falling; it hurts more the higher up you get.
