Sky Sahler - Poem by Katty Livingston

Abandon ship,
We're airborne but the engine is stalling.
With one tiny slip,
My whole world is suddenly falling.
It's funny how
The ground rushes up to meet me so,
And you won't even make a move.
There's so many things that I'm dying to know,
And so little that you're willing to do.

If I took a sudden nosedive,
Could you even hear me calling your name?
And even if I fought to stay alive,
Would things even be the same?
Things will never be the same.

Free falling,
I'm plummeting through the air.
Time seems to slow,
Till I'm almost crawling-
So I'm not really going anywhere.
I'll write your name in the clouds,
As I'm inching my way down.
I remember when my heart beat so loud,
Now I don't even hear a sound.

If I took a sudden nosedive,
Could you even hear me calling your name?
And even if I fought to stay alive,
Would things even be the same?
Things will never be the same.

You still want me to keep hanging on.
But deep down, we both know
That I could never be that strong.
So, I'm finally letting go.

If I took a sudden nosedive,
Could you even hear me calling your name?
And even if I fought to stay alive,
Would things even be the same?

All in all, I would say
That when I hit rock bottom,
I finally felt the truth-
I'm falling hard for you.

    Very vivid imagery in this piece, very well written, truly you have come up with some immaculate lines.

    'Till I'm almost crawling-
    So I'm not really going anywhere.
    I'll write your name in the clouds,
    As I'm inching my way down.'

    Beautiful. :)
