Downward Fall - Poem by Alexander Coppedge

No interests dangerously in its plan fact held in a fall, I'm not special: a mighty super man.

I tumble rise up at times soar space in free fall, touched by wind; I am chilled by autumn's air.

In adventurous voyage fall plummet course lack aim, aid reach ignored; I within my given concerns.

Wind gusts grabs, grip took to fall place on a ride, lack feathers to escape; I've nothing to fly.

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

Twirler's piton in flips, my glide drop point floating away from toss; me a spot free in space self in a fall.

Humbled in mind as I fall in confusion in circles turned, destiny certain; I'm down in swirls.

As waste emptied seen as nothing once active; now I fall freed with happening of then silenced.

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

I'm a pending shipwreck by would be collision, rescue not seen; me in fall in whirl.

Voyage thrilling to say captures me in spins, my drop from place: rock in down fall definite decline.

A victim in gravity's law fall descent down in sways no hopes back; seemingly me in a void: I all alone.

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

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

Fly its body trap in spins, I deny destiny to come its bad interests it held: them all pertain in this fall.

Space in its say nerving to believe slip fall not able to grab back my limb place: my extension above.

Fall sailed on winds smash spot end torments, I about drop wanting not this fact; its assurance for me at all.

In changes I fall altered in exchanges, confounded completely in heart woes; my agreed 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, it records my tried aims; my arrival to solid land: me as I fall.

Bee attacked by extremes toss by unseen foe, fall tip in swirls around forced: a reality view less.

Victim do feats, prisoner whirled like nothing in wind downfall; rip in air currents I by life drags.

A loner age wrinkled a fall grave plot, wind hurled toy limbs in pain broken: them as soft like a child.

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

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

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

Abyss in air turbulence in a fall it holds tight; loosed from grasp re-tightened firmly: it upon body again.

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

Archer shot in a surge at target, curled down to its mark falling swiftly; me going down in a fall.

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

Slip fall green, go in air its drop unassisted to be my dramatic red light; 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.

Not unique, I as others in unstoppable Fall changes altered by sequences: us in seasonal times.

Other side I fall slide backwards a pre-destined end to close; collision end of my vessel to stop.

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

Upwards at times sent out in air travel in fall, I soar dangerously in wind; I'm under changing care.

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

Youthful memories arms tight cut they were event (in dream stop) back then; fall is a happening now.

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

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

My existence a memory of past, a leaf I'm in Fall be among many, no renewal; sunlight I descend:
