How many times has she fallen?

Down the front stoop
blush and get back up
Down the stairs
grimace and get back up
Up the stairs
sneer and get back up
Out of the chair
sigh and get back up
Off the bar
laugh and get back up
Off the kerb
curse and get back up
Out of the car
wince and get back up
Into the garden
vomit and get back up
Down nine stories
Into the gutter
sob and get back up
Into his arms
stay there.
