Falling Fruit

undefined

You fly into the blue
Another journey to somewhere
while I remain nowhere

As you fly into the blue
An engine gives a cough
The cargo bounces about

You text me of love
A strange message from you
I text back words of love

They say the plane crashed slow
Hundreds of lives frozen in terror
My heart broke into love shards

You died in that crash
Going into the green
As it rained falling fruit
