There I was
minding my own business
in deep contemplation
with matters of my own life,
and then you fell
like Newton’s apple
right out of nowhere
from an absolutely clear sky,

I would have happily
taken the blame
for being at the wrong place
at the wrong time,
had you been
an ordinary apple
that rolled off
after making a dent,

But you completely
missed the target
and tore a hole
into my heart,
and I think
Newton got away lucky
for it was only his head
that bore the brunt.
