Chasm


It's wide and deep
Squinting to see across
Your feet on the edge
How painful if you drop
It will only be a second
No more then that
One its over nothing left but shore
Waves lapping over you till the end of this world
Your return to them
With open arms
If only you can see them
For then you will stop
The next step you take determines life or death
You take it waiting to hit
Floating though
Falling down faster
Gravity tug
A tear streams out
What a foolish mistake
Tis not the end
Your feet are back up
Touching the soft smooth ground
If only it was real
You're still falling
Not making a sound
