sky diving

alarms

go off

ever so often

alarms

go off

ever so often

the incessant
ringing

the infra red
illuminated
dots
red
dots

ringing
in my ears

incessant
pleading

for attention
affection

alarms
go off

ever so often
diverging
my attention

diverging
my dark chocolate eyes

my partially
open
full lips

into a smile.
into a snarl.

alarms
external
and internal.

internal.

reminding me
reminding me

that
I am human.
a woman.
a person.

a lover.

flailing
falling
falling.
falling.  2016, Stella Santamaria
