A hairsbreadth between now and then
A single step all that separates the ground from the abyss
I clutch at this fraying strand of rope
And my muscles scream in endless agony
I ask why?
Why not let go and enjoy the split second of flight?
Why not sink into the depths away from the blinding light?
Why not embrace the fear of the unknown
And let the darkness wrap her silken arms around me?
What is there to fear…
