The daily prompt is fall and instead of talking about the season I talked about the word itself

The Air Beneath Me (Title)

I fall down all the time I fall down and I don't want to get back up because I know I'll fall again

It hurts There are no pillows to soften my landing because they are waiting for me in my bed

I've fallen down a lot recently and even though people were there to pick me back up again I know they won't always be

And I know they don't need to because they fall down too and I can't see that from where I am

All I see is darkness when I fall

it's the color of the rug in my room that I fall onto after spending the day trying to be okay

It's the color of the street I collapsed onto last night in the cold where I couldn't catch my breath and I thought "This is it."

It's the color of the sky as I walked home today feeling the tears push against my eyes and trickle down my bright red cheeks and instead of heading home I found a place to sit and fall some more

I know I'm not done I know I'm still falling and I don't know how long it'll last but I'll be better off when I hit the bottom
