Why I Fall - Poem by Hector Garcia

its seems as though the light beneath me has broken
its immortality and takes me to where i can wander
and not surrender to the light before that.
Night by day as days stay young
as light turns green and sees its full
never again will it grow but fall
never again will it fall but rest at all
It held me with its cold fingers
cried to me the answer of why the air
turned mossy in rocks and strong
elsewhere.


the nights before that were calm
until the wind shifted
and the fall resolved.
never will again will its
silence so loud as to
shut with words.
