This fall

This fall
I fall
Out of you
Into me
Like a leaf leaving a dying tree
To nourish the earth
Like a drop of water
Escaping an empty glass
Into a parched throat
Like a child outgrowing a mother
And taking a first breath

This fall
I fall
Without you
For me
Like the sun noticing a city
For the first time
And crowning it in golden seduction
Like a diver flying momentarily
To brave an ocean of unknowns
Like the moon when night calls
And the stars throw her a parade

I hope you die a silent death
Your life I think was loud enough
