New Shoes. - Poem by Gary Hembree

Falling in slow motion.
Gasping for what fuels life.
Nothing in sight to slow this descent.
A never ending view of blue.
With the wish to see something new.
I guess I shouldn't have worn these shoes.
But they said I would love them because they were new.
Falling in slow motion.
Hungry for what fuels life.
Eyes close, to take the sleep that ends my view.
