My Abyss

An open crevice, like

A monster's gaping maw

Waiting, beckoning

To swallow me whole.


I stand at the edge

Alone. Afraid.

The darkness

Echoes below.


I want to walk away.

Like I always have.

Ignore it until it goes away.

But it never does.


So here I am.

Preparing to take the leap

I've dreaded since birth.

To conquer my fear.


Before I do, to save myself

I must remind myself

That I am never, never




Need to talk?
