Fleeting

Bearing down, I tell myself,
That I must not float away,
But with a young heart’s flutter,
I begin to lose this weight.

Though I attempted caution,
I could not anticipate,
Falling lightly toward you,
Just to watch you turn away.

I cannot say I blame you,
But I only wanted wings,
Gravity has been cruel to me,
My heart pulled through my feet.

I ran back to the comfort,
Of the weight that I’d forgotten,
Added to it’s tons now,
Is the smile I’d been lost in.

Never have I changed this part,
Still I call it a regression,
So I keep on simply adding weight,
Proof I’ve never learned my lesson.
