Faceplant

Unsteady legs move step by step,

making the impossible journey

more of an ill-timed adventure.

The destination unknown to the mind

but kept well guarded by the heart;

each move forward is five steps back.

Blinded by this obsession, not a love,

a weary traveler can only make it so far

before each step becomes a hell.

A twisted mirage on a city block

and finally I lose my footing

faceplanting at your feet.
