slipped on the stairs
time has built
between years
headlong into the fear

fear of falling
of breaking
not dying

no powers of healing
are left to dead bones

fear of falling
of breaking
not dying

no room for new pain
mind and body and soul
already afflicted
by agonies
uncertain endings
attach to each
mortally hesitant step
loss of confidence
vulnerability
raw and acute

fear of falling
of breaking
not dying

faith never more
weak and defenseless
prayer can’t find
its moment
its place
among moments
already unbearable
ceaselessly mute

fear of falling
of breaking
not dying

the deep well of tears
long since empty
