fall from grace

i fell
and
you didnt catch me
in the fields where those sunflowers grew
so tall

the grass
was
so soft and verdant
i closed my eyes and dreamed of colors
so bright

the sun
felt
like liquid honey
closing over me rich and gentle
so warm

the cold
wind
brushed my arms and face
i reached out for you and found nothing
so lost

i stood
up
and fell down again
why werent you there to catch my fall
so dark

i lay
down
and wondered about
those tall sunflowers that you once picked
for me.
