One Autumn Leaf Falling – Notthedane56

20170922_152818.jpg

 

One instant
I walked along the Autumn Streets
dreaming of someone, I once knew
the leaves falling
my heart breaking

I chanced upon a turn in the road
around the corner, out of sight
I wondered, should I, dare I
let this Autumn Road take me?

Let me turn when it turns
and stop when it ebbs out
let us take a moment to breathe
or, down a sandwich of October Air

The road ahead, hid the road behind,
my past lives, my past loves
lie hidden under the browns, the oranges
the yellows, blown about, sharp edges gone
soft

One Autumn Leaf Falling
and I, running with cupped hand
choosing to end its fall, a rescue of sorts

One choice to make
or not to make,
thinking that stopping one leaf falling
can change my life, my fate, my last days
my last thoughts turning golden
fading away in the end

Fading away
