Apple Of My Eye

If the apple fell into a pie
how far from the tree
would it be?

I fell into
everything I've lived with
I fell into
everyone I've lived through.

I fell and rolled
without a say
without volition
or salvation
just going with the flow
wherever it would go

Until you

I chose you
the apple of my eye
I chose you
and for the first time
since the fall
I didn't roll
I didn't roll on
or out
or away

I stayed

with you.
