falling upwards

whenever I see you,
I see you falling upwards
towards the sky with
your arms spread wide,
ready to embrance whatever
that can be embraced up there,
your clothes aflutter
with that sound of whipping cloth
that clothes make when people fall
downwards played backwards
just like your smile
stuck in that endless motion
twisting and turning in on itself
and beginning again
twisting and turning in on itself
twisting and turning
twisting and turning
obsessively twisting and turning
and beginning again
again
again
and I have absolutely no idea when
you will finally arrive where you’re
supposed to be because
(you’re)
in the end
(endlessly)
that’s where we all end up
(suspended)
even if that’s not what
(in motion)
we know we want
