We Are Falling

by Bertie Koller

we are falling to pieces
like rain to the ground
following our rivers
wherever they are bound

we are falling in love
like tears of stone
the scars of the heart
know nothing of bone

we are falling forever
as once we did rise
the moon & the stars
the sun in our eyes

we are falling in love
like coins down a well
we strike the bottom
ringing out like bells

we are falling to pieces
like wood burned to ash
somewhere in the flame
we buried our past
