Fallen Again

Just as I thought I had conquered you

Coming out of the clouds of despair

I see you in the distance and I — hunger

In solitary soliloquy

I’m on my knees


I wrap my hands around you

Feeling your firmness

Beneath my fingers

Even as you burn in fluidity

I’m begging more please


With just one step

I took twelve steps back

No waiting to see if tomorrow

I reach the lucidity

To ease my pain


One day at a time begins anew

I put the cap on you once more

And come to accept

With complete humility

I’ve fallen again
