Poem -

Melancholy tree

Somewhere
in my short time
i fell from the
top of theĀ 
tree
i hit every
branch
every twig
on the way down
shame
guilt
apathy
Sadness
Fear

And when I got to theĀ 
Bottom
the trunk of it
I sat for a while
and waitedĀ 
until I realised
that I would
need to climb
this treeĀ 
one thornĀ 
and heartache
at a time
until i could
see the other
treesĀ 
the skylineĀ 
and
I could see
myself again
