The Abyss

Location

And all of a sudden

just like that

I'm back to walking across that glass tight rope

And I'm slicing my feet

and they're bleeding down into the abyss

And it's so deep and dark

that the bottom may not even exist

And I'm wondering how it came to this

how my radar rusted

disintegrated

and the fog rolled in again as if my defenses were open doors

And I'm thinking that it would be so easy to lose my balance

to fall

But then, choosing to lose is never easy at all
