You walk tall
on borrowed height
a practiced gait
devoid of grace
an adopted pride
that outshines the sun
even the raindrops
fear your outrage
vanity comes
before a fall
you pushed
and it was me who fell
a proverb squirmed
as in anothers woe
you redeemed
your fading halo.

Destiny intentionally
trips you sometimes
illusions are real
till the vision lasts
reality hits
when you fall
headlong into a sea
the surface calm
hiding a reality untold
where the depths
are the heights
and even the
darkness is gold
where nothing is shallow
and everything is real.
