September 15-21, 2018

 

Ivy Lea

 

it is enormous, this thing before me

immense above far restless waves

unbent beneath relentless load

I am so very small upon it

dwarfed by enormities

 

intangible threat inhabits sturdy reassurance

danger strolls hand-in-hand with safety

death greets life along the abyss

silent voices insistent cry

“It would be so easy”

and it would be

 

easy

 

so very easy

it wouldnt be very hard at all

emptiness calls with gravitic insistence

brilliant depths tempt surrender of steel embrace

 

infinitys suddenly nearer door beguiles

white knuckled, I clutch at the rail

as far from the edge as can be
