Descent

 

falling

 

On a cliff I wait

Teetering on its edge

Below dark clouds form

Insidious nebulosus harboring despair, dread

 

Perched above the stratosphere

Few choices avail

Jump or linger

Given time, gravity prevails

 

The descent will hurt

Each time is worse

I try suggested remedies

Friends, family, love, these never work

 

Impacting the dirt

The only choice will be up

Unless I take one fateful step forward

Submitting to a grave, pre-dug

 

Decaying in that hole

Perhaps I will find solace

For the dead are impassive

Mere things the earth devours
