She comes down
From a delusion
About how
Her life is wonderful

She looks up
And sees an oddity
It seems flat
Yet screams solidity

The sky falls slowly

She finds out
About her broken heart
And asks why
There's tension in the air

She sits down
In sheer serenity
And goes back
To existing leisurely

The sky falls slowly

She steps out
In curiosity
She's pulled down
By a painless gravity

The square plate
Is larger than it was
She looks in
And her reflection shows

The sky falls slowly

She's alone
She lacks adjacency
She invites
Friends from a fantasy

The sky moves
To kiss the ground below
She puts up
A hand to wave farewell

The sky is falling
