Falling Forward


Standing on the edge of innocence
Looking ahead into the unknown
I look up
Nowhere left to go but down
Should I jump?
I know I can't stand here
I stare into the distance
Constantly questioning myself
Wishing for no regrets
I leap forward, only to fall behind
Desperately searching
Is this cold hollow soul
Really who I want to be
I feel the softness of the air
Brushing lightly against my hand
Your eyes so piercing
I pray for just one last glance
The silence echo's.
We stand face to face
Hand in hand
I hear you silently yelling
Can no one hear my cries?
I have sealed my fate
It's over
All I have has been lost
What we had is gone
A simple kiss, A simple smile
A simple good-bye
