Falling Down a Flight of Stairs

Falling Down a Flight of Stairs

A Poem by Lydia Jamison

I'm falling down a flight of stairs,
My bones are breaking,
No one cares.
The blood is rushing
Through my hair.
I'm falling down a flight of stairs.

Crashing, tumbling, falling down.
My landing didn't make a sound.
The noise was gone,
I think it drowned
While I was
Crashing, tumbling, falling down.

The pain, it didn't go away.
I woke up hurting
The next day.
I always knew that I would break.
The pain, it didn't go away.

I'd fallen down a flight of stairs.
You fixed my wounds
When no one else cared.
I never knew that you'd be there
When I was falling down the stairs.
