I Fell

I fell
but I fell with a purpose
one as close to my heart
as simple sustenance
like a fly dives
on to the nearest stool
like sea birds soar
low above a silver school
I fell

And like ash broken
into a thousand pieces
felt no such crash
but floated, soared, dipped and dived
until I wasn’t even there
but became part of the whipping air
and now cling to you so gently
you don’t even realize
I’m there

I fell
but I fell with a purpose
and now
I wait
for you to pick me up.

I Fell
