Floating on your fluffy cloud
Gazing upon the rest of the world
Basking in the happiness and the fleeting joy
A promise you thought you could keep and hold onto
All too soon.
As abruptly as everything started
A blast of loud light strikes
It leaves you stumbling and falling
Like a limp leaf from a tree
Slowly, gently, but continuously plunging
In slow motion, as you quietly and helplessly watch
Every past good thing collapsing with you.
Your descent becomes your awakening, a realization
That maybe this love
This happiness you felt too soon
Is just not meant to be.
