Landslide

I’m in free fall,
unanchored,
with no sense of
what tomorrow will bring.
It’s unsettling, to say the least,
for a girl who thrives on
the idea that I’d finally
found a balance,
maybe even made some sense
out of this life.
Just when I think
we’re climbing back to level ground
the earth shifts
beneath my feet.
Landslide.
I search for air and hold on,
waiting for solid footing
and reason’s return.
