Gazing my fall

I fell and stood up, I gazed,
I am gazing, I swallowed and
chocked, escape…now!..
I shrank and stretched,
I have to be brave!…I climbed back…
its ticking…I sit…I am watching…limitations…
…I have marked…my self……others…
I sit…I am watching…limitations…I have marked…my self…others…
I am filling and emptying holes…
I reached my hand…grabbed…
she is gone…washed away…
Inside…aside…
I'm inside…on the edge of light and skin
blood, crust, and pulse
redness covered your face
white in your mucous body
drops falling along the stones
no wisdom nor prophecy is left within you
only nature spoke you live.

Gazing my fall is a confrontation with the nature of rise and fall, acknowledging the dark
phase and empty stage verses the excitement and challenges of the high pick.
In my working process words turned into a physical experience and shaped different
meanings.
