It's time for me to fall from where I stand,
To get all clumsy and messy like I was once upon a time.
I will not hold back anymore and let it flow,
I will not smile and hurt my mouth.
I will let my bones melt and
Not keep my eyes open any longer.
I will stand on a running bus on its way to Chittagong.
I will swim the ocean to get to the other side.
I will break into pieces and
Scream out loud,
Jump up and down and
Roll on the ground.
I will sit in the rain for hours,
Catch a cold,
Get sun burnt,
Watch the stars,
Follow the moon where ever it goes (it used to follow me when I was younger).
I could simply fall asleep and never wake up,
I could jump off a cliff and never climb back up,
I could take a shower in my jeans,
I could run around naked on the street,
I could climb a tree and become a bat,
Watching the world upside down.
It’s time for me to fall from where I stand,
And walk around broken.
