Liability

If you follow me
off this cliff
into madness
into the mess
of something
that only feels
like love
out of curiosity
or loneliness
or boredom
I won’t catch you—
I won’t even try
to break your fall.

Liability (Version 2 – can’t decide which is best)

If
out of curiosity
or loneliness
or boredom
you follow me
off this cliff
into madness
into the mess
of something
that only feels
like love,
I won’t catch you—
I won’t even try
to break your fall.
