Downward Fall - Poem by Alexander Coppedge

I have no interests in this fact dangerously in a doom fall not to be special: not to be a mighty super man.

Upwards at times far out in air travel in a fall soaring carelessly in wind; I'm under changing gusts care.

I tumble down in a free fall rising up in a soar of space, touched by wind blows; I am chilled by autumn's air.

Adventurous voyage fall plummet course lacks aim, my reach for aid ignored; in my sad given held concerns.

Wind gusts grabs body is gripped and took to my fall place, lacking feathers to escape it; I nothing to fly.

A droplet in fall traveling in the air light as paper, jet in sad happening fear rules inside: my innards release.

Twirler's piton in flips its point floating away from toss, spot in a glide: myself in a fall within its sleep.

In mind I fall humbled in confusion in circles turned within spins fast, destiny certain; I'm down in swirls.

I as old waste emptied being seen as nothing; fall with past happening of then: them to be silenced.

I'm under sad mind's cloud bat in dark covered -a feel of horrific; I twirl in my fall dark mist uncertainties.

I a pending to be shipwreck wave victim by would be collision, any rescue for me not seen; me in fall in whirl.

Voyage is thrilling to say it captures my spins, the drop from place up: rock to be in down fall definite decline.

Victim in gravity's law fall descent sways with no hopes back; seemingly me in a void: in mind all alone.

Fall is off tree I anchored once from trunk extension upon a branch; close up to its tip: far out on its reach.

My drop is since slip fall is constant from foundation, my limb felt no more; this big one above us -up there.

Can't fly body trap in spins I deny destiny to come, its bad interests it held: them factors pertain to this fall.

Space in its say nerving to believe slip and fall quick, I'm not able to grab back limb: spot extension above.

Fall sails me on its winds its smash end torments, I drop wanting not this fact; assurance upon me at all.

In changes I fall altered in exchanges confounded completely, heart woes; my agreed in a down for sure.

Life fall flash clips of past memory unfold time fade by fast them: ticks before my dimming, closing eyes.

Frames lapsed pictures be certainties record my tried aims; arrival to solid firm land: me in a fall.

Bee by extremes attacked foe unseen has toss, tip in fall swirled around forced: a reality for me view less.

Victim do feats a prisoner whirled like nothing in its wind downfall; I'm air rip in currents by life drags.

Loner aged -be wrinkled, a fall to grave plot toy hurled with limbs in pain broken: them as soft like a child.

Fall is a consistent drop it is unavoidable, return gone to climb up to start: my trip up there -I see no way.

End of my acknowledged fact, land assured no doubts to come; fall matter solution to be my ground spot.

Display hold fall wisdom it knows my outcome to be on me, its bent event; I can't lie: or me about it pretend.

Abyss I in air turbulence in a fall it to hold tight; loosed from grasp, it re-tightened upon body again.

Eyes see resolution a stop warning to be certainties, fall is trouble taking life; I am falling down: I am.

Archer's shot in a surge at their target curled down to its mark -falling swiftly; me going down in a fall.

Bulls eye is grounding place x to land, I confronts fact denying it; no matter fall reassuringly I to earth.

Slip fall is green go in air drop to be my dramatic red light; body in a brake point for me as ground.

Grave turns me right brief restored life again having warmth of joys: hot sun to give delightful fall.

Touch recount past I smile at it all recalling then; fall flip me back: my vision to reclaim set death frown.

Other side rolled in fall slide back to a predestined come to close; final collision to end my vessel to stop.

I'm not unique as others in unstoppable Fall, altered by change sequences: our lives reversed in seasonal times.

In aimless uncontrollable motions a dandelion going down land seen; eye sight seeing fall: me in decline.

Memories arms were tight cut they were as an event (dream stop) back then; fall is a happening now.

Times demands Fall it has touched me, mind weak by change to curl limbs: them aggressively, parts pull in.

A reminder of promise it to come to us time solely in autumn; a real span in life for all by aging: I in its Fall.

While I decline no vocal yelled, no happiness about fall to be -nothing spoken; I about this truth: it at all.

Existence as a memory of past, a leaf in Fall among many no renewal back; in sunlight we descend:
