Day 25: For today’s prompt, write a falling poem. This could be about the physical act of falling (like someone tying your shoelaces together), or it could be symbolic falling (such as falling in love). With only five days left (after today), we’re quickly falling out of another poem-a-day challenge. Make these last few days count, or at least, fall forward toward the finish line.

For My Eyes Only
Falling up the stairs takes talent
I’ve done it a few times
Then glanced quickly over each shoulder
To see if my performance had an audience.
Regained my momentum,
Took a new breath
And took another step forward.
It’s important to keep going.
