I Fell Today

It was a day like any other

  Until I fell

Not becaue I am clumsy or not paying attention

  I just fell

It was sudden, quick

In the bllink of an eye

   I fell

I did not trip, nor did I stumble

It seemed no obstacles were in my way

  Yet, I fell

Sudden fear, adrenalin

The feeling of weightlessness

  As I fell

Visions of pain filled my mind

Perhaps real damage

  Because of my fall

I held my breath

Braced for the impact

  Hoping that if I fall again it will not be this far

Flipant Don is on the Rhyme
Don, you need to he more careful
Words can trip you up see
And at times can be quite hurtful
Your imaginary stairs are not the cause
Its yout rhyming, reason and tell
Your tounges not tied, lips unsealed
Are the reason why you fell .....

Was climbing up my stairs today
(I don't have stairs, but need for rhyme)
I tripped (how bloody clumsy)
I do this all the time

But Lisa I am learning
To not so clumsy be
Each time I trip and fall down (these imaginary stairs)
The 'far' gets less, you see?
