Help The Fallen: Revolutionary ImproVerse Free Verse Poetry

You trust
falls off the path,
into the abyss,
don’t follow him down,

and perhaps again lead you
on the path upward.

Because that’s what
He hopes you’ll do.

on the verge/
of opening./

Facing the great chasm/
and depths of life,/

who explained/

hoping a net would appear,/
feeling secure/
that he would not let her/
fall,/

So she, feeling spurned,/
turned/
and ran,/
again,/
back to her safe place,/
and put back on her bland face,/
and hid.
