Today I Fell - Poem by Tony Jolley

Aujhourd’hui Je Suis Tombé

Today I fell.
I fell a lot further,
I fell a lot faster.
Further than distance;
Faster than speed;
Way beyond want
And far beyond need

Tomorrow I’ll fall.
I’ll fall even further,
I’ll fall even faster.
Further than possible;
Faster than light;
Way beyond day
And far beyond night.

Way beyond wrong,
Yet far beyond right;
Faster than thought
And further than sight.
Faster than life;
Further than time;
Far beyond forever,
And purer than prime

Do you feel the falling?
Are you falling too?
I know you’ll catch me
As my love catches you.
