Precipice

On the edge of death

Balancing on the ledge

Looking into the dark

Scared out of my wits

May be the first time I saw clearly

When the hand was squeezing my throat

Choking me tighter and tighter

Gasping for a breath

With the world spinning wildly away

May be the first time I could speak my truth

When my heart was breaking

Into a million bits

And my mind was losing its grip

On what was real

May be the first time I felt whole

Go ahead jump,

Take your last breath

Shatter

Go insane

Lose it all

To find it all

Love only surrenders

To the most courageous
