4. In the Falling Away - In the Falling Away, the outstretched hand gets slapped away for your precious escape, a backward path that has been made. God only knows how terror grows and gets in close. Turns us to Ghosts. In the Falling Away, my fingertips still burn for your proximity. So close, and yet so far. So distant, but inside of me. That day is far from dead, repeating forever in my head. So fleeting, the time we had to spend believing that there would be no end. Deceiving. What was that missing word we could have used to end this shame? I scream them at your grave. They still all sound the same. This face no longer bearing your name. The lines tracing, tracing the grey, tracing the grey. How should I feel? Should I curse you under breathe? How could I peel away the flesh 'til nothing's left? How would we know we'd never bring the fallen home? You left us alone forever to be haunted by your Ghost in the Falling Away.
