Catch Me I'm Falling

Life is a mystery

I can't solve

full of secrets

answers elude me

questions keep circling

like Vultures picking

at my bones

success keeps running from me

failure I can catch easily

please the world

please no one

whose to say my destiny

isnt' for greatness

free me

release my soul

Catch me I'm falling

spiraling out of control

making wishes

that never come true

dreams turn into


close my eyes I disappear

open them again

the image screams

back at me

Catch me I'm falling

where will I land

is there going to be someone

there to pick up the pieces

that use to be me

put me back together

this time make sure

all the pieces fit

Catch me I'm falling

save me

love me

tell me I'm beautiful

heal me

complete me

don't abuse what's been

given to you

Let my spirit soar

Catch me I'm falling

How many time can one break a crystal. Sound like you are finding out. Again. Beautiful!

The sadness is multiplied by the truth and hope in a better ending.
