This is the last time I will edit this, unless...

Newton's gravity law,

I was truly convinced,

did not apply to me.

So weightless I buoyed

above the trees,

and watched you

etch lines in the dirt.

Unclothed in my bliss,

and swaddled in lies

I exhaled to savor

the fruit I desired.

Ashamed and aware,

I quickly perceived:

you have never been

everything that I believed.

As your eyes catch hold

my mind's paralyzed

and a hallowed violence

shakes the trees.

Pulled from my high,

I splash into your sea

to an expanse where

physics dare not exist.

Suddenly drowned in your skin

swept into your waves,

I am grounded by gravity.


The End
