Fall

Standing at the edge The brink of existence, One foot up; the other at the edge One step forward, or a tilt in any direction Or a strong whip of wind or change of mind And I would tumble and crash Into the chasm; Fall and fall Faster, a weighted stone Burdened by limits and … Continue reading Fall
