Falling Out

Falling Out

written by: Bartholomew Barker



for Lyla


Thrown through a window
of your heart, I fall.
Did I say something wrong
or not enough?

Mind racing gravity,
reviewing each word, each gesture.
Did my hugs feel like tethers
when you were hoping for space?

Should I have just listened
instead of working on a fix?
There’s no forgiveness
bleeding on the ground,

wondering which communication
lead to my defenestration.
