As I Stand


As I stand on the edge of the abyss

My mind beginning to wander

Pondering

Expressions

Names

Faces

Skeletons long forgotten

Places barely remembered

As I stand on the edge of the abyss

My toes suspended

Free from gravity’s pull

Dangling

Hovering

Just waiting for the rest of me to follow…

Distance


In my heart
Within my tired mind
Behind my eyes
A path grown over

Inside my head
No clarity
No direction
Only fear of tomorrow
Complete panic
Total desperation

Hidden in my soul
A distance growing
A breakdown
A meltdown
A fractured distorted reality

Looking outward from within
Just hoping
Praying
Longing for simplicity
Blindly reaching into oblivion

Grasping for a step forward
Falling backwards
Never quite attaining square one…
