Falling Up

When I close my eyes, I fall up

Into the black of thought

Where mind and body meet

That place of insight

Have you been there today?

I left there yesterday

When I open my eyes, I fall down

Into the void of reality

Where home and family were

That place with life

The box of walls

Now I need to rest, contemplate, renew

When I wake, my reality will have changed

I find I've grown up, with out you
