Falling Down

Heartstring Eulogies

“And this is when I crumble.
Knowing that my heart wants only you.”

And this is when I crumble. When the fear takes over and my heart overpowers my mind. It’s the knowing that my heart wants only you. The trembling of my foundation becomes too much to remain on my unsteady feet and I begin to sway. As the pieces fall beneath me, forcing me to balance, knowing that it’s only a matter of time before I fall, I try to prepare myself. But I’m never ready to fall apart. I’m never ready to be vulnerable. To be seen. Raw. Flawed. And scared. Always scared. But I know, eventually I will land on solid ground and then, maybe then, it won’t drop out from under me.

So please, tell me you’ve got me,
because I don’t want
to fall away from you.
