terra firma

04/19/2010

I’ve seen the jagged rocks
I’ve imagined the fall
pictured my broken self
bleeding and unreachable
helplessly abandoned
waiting for the cold to win

I didn’t fall
stayed on the safe side of the guardrail
with a blink of what could have been
a fresh set of eyes
looking fast to a future
on firm grounds
and plotted pathways
