F is for

that feeling of falling,
well, more than falling,
would be the best word
to describe the moment
when it hits you that
you’ve made the biggest
most dreadful mistake
of your life
and the earth may as well
cave in beneath you
and the sky collapse
on top of you
because there does not appear
to be any possible way
you will be able to survive
or rise above
your biggest and most dreadful mistake

and god help anyone
who sees you and says
‘Cheer up, it may never happen.’
