    Very clever writing, it could be an Autumn haiku, or a story that falls flat not just in the telling but the untruths behind it, whether in the 'Fall' aka Autumn or not.

    startling, moving

    long lifetime cut short a fall

    an effective interplay of 6 singular words
    that are common phrases
    broken down by line breaks:
    a long story short
    the shortfall of fall
    how abbreviated life sometimes feels
