Thousand Ways To Fall

edward-hopper-automata-1923         Edward Hopper – Automata, 1927.

I can be brave
If someone holds
My trembling hand

I could take
The easy way out
But I’ll make my stand

I can come alive
If someone takes
The silver umbrage away

But most of all
I could be loved
If someone looks my way

I can find in
This darkness
Thousand ways to fall

But I can’t find
One that would take me
Beyond the wall

I could be fixed
If someone tried
I could be repaired

But most of all
I could be loved
If someone dared
