turned to fell

i asked her
did it hurt when you fell?
she gave me a grin
from heaven?
thinking she had heard
this one before
it was my turn to grin back
no, from the pedestal i had placed you on, high above every other
her face crumbled
like the foundation
of respect
i had had for her
this wasn’t
a pick up line
it was everything
falling apart
