Always something

It's always got to be something.
That one thing that takes the wind out from under your wings making you tremble,
and fall.
And it's always the something you generally expect,
But hoped wouldn't happen.
It's like if you went to give someone a hug,
And they just evaporated when you touched them,
Leaving you damp all over and shivering.
How can you expect someone to evaporate when you hug them?
You just wouldn't think to think of that.
Of course when it happens,
You might realize how perfectly probable it was in the first place as you tumble through blank space where there was once a body.
When you fall,
The sun falls,
And everything else falls leaving you nothing to cling to.
You have to wait
Until the world turns right side up again.
