Harder

And then he fell.
Gravity couldn’t want him more than I did.
Yet he fell
harder and quicker
than that night.
Against his control
within his will
towards it
and away from it all.
Away from me
and closer to me still.
For I fell first and fast.
Faster than I could dictate,
I would not, will not
could not
wait.
I tripped and woke
with a bolt of
wakefulness.
I can’t wait for this
and it won’t wait
for me.
He won’t wait for me.
