Catch

it’s hard to stay standing when your whole foundation is crumbling

 

when that thing under your feet that’s helped you stay upright gets pulled out from under you like an old stained rug

 

when you lose your sounding board

 

your back up plan when everything else goes wrong

 

it’s like someone pushed you out of an airplane and cut your parachute

 

free falling with no one but yourself to land on

 

like a puppet without strings

 

or piano without any of the black keys

 

still functional but the beauty behind the music is gone

 

so I guess I’ll have to rewrite the melody

 

make it a solo instead of a duet

 

find a way to be my own gravity

 

my own net under the tightrope

 

I’ve been falling for you for 4 years now, but I guess it’s my turn to catch
