The Fall

Black Pool
Deep and dark
I looked once
And almost lost my way

Did you notice--
My fall?
When I lost my breath
And turned away?

Myself, I saved
And carried on
Balanced and stronger
Day by day

I had resisted the pull
Of that dubh linn
As it sweetly tried to steal my heart--
And on my mind, did prey

I wouldn't look
"Don’t look" I cried
Digging my heels into the sand
"Leave me not to betray"

But It was just a look
Just one look
I would never fall...
Let come what may

And then--
I fell




Into the pitch and sway
