Not much further

to fall now.

Surely.

I have been tumbling
over and over
for so long
I have lost sight of the sky
and all sense
of which way is up.

At times it seems
a weightless drift,
soft as a dandelion seed;
until I look at the walls around me
blurred to black
by impossible speed.

Do I look down –
calculate, brace myself,
hope against all hope –
or surrender to the void
and go out quietly
never knowing.
