24/10/16 An abstract piece from the imagination
Standing on the edge of a cliff,
toes overhanging the great chasm.
Peer down into the dizzying depths,
that enormous, bottomless abyss
seeming to suck at your being,
to draw you in, down, down down...
You ache to give in to it,
to let yourself
...but some tiny vestige of hope,
smaller than small,
invisible to the heart,
strong as love,
draws you back.
...and you snap into yourself.
Your eyes refocus,
seeing in sharp detail,
in vigorous, blinding colour...
the world you live in.
