Facing the Fall

Facing the Fall

I’ve deadened the feeling

Become deaf and dumb

Small oval pills

Are under my tongue

As I rock in forbearance

In attempt to maintain

A fear that foreshadows

Such intolerable pain

Nickels and pennies

I reap for the lack

Of satiable sweetness

That will not come back

Bitterness swallowed

Fouls up my insides

Wreaking such havoc

Until I provide

A finger to foster

All that I contain

I heave invocations

Screaming your name

Tears won’t resolve

This incessant loss

Facing the fall

Is a bridge I can’t cross
