Treasure Island

Dawn Michelle

(8/3/91 / Van Nuys, California)

Falling is Expected


Not a moment lost
You push yourself to extremes
In your mind you speak
Invigorating words
An enemy of time
Your actions are quick
‘Harder and faster’
Your invisible goal
Passing time and space
Your thoughts are elsewhere
Your sparkle gone
Fire soon takes it’s place
I’m not telling you to stop
Or give up on your actions
But I’ll be here when you fall
For this is expected

Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
