-Me Fall-

looking into the mirror,
seeing cool mist slide over the walls.

slowly, turning around.

falling to my knees,
with no one to see me fall.

the mirror's frame
rattles,
shaking like a flag in the wind.

through the window
I see the moonlight,
making the walls swim with phantoms of the night.

crawling on hands and knees.

make it to the door,
leaning, searching
for someone
who won't let me fall.
