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




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
