I stared below at the thousands of trees That were so small they looked like broccoli I stumbled ahead while my knees shook heavily As if laughing at my attempted bravery  
At First But Then   At first sight, I looked at her and I thought to myself was it safe At first glance, even her name, Verbolten, said don't touch
I am terrified of heights. Not sure how it started, But whenever I reach A certain threshold, I see myself tumbling over the edge
For so long I feared great heights. The long drop down chilled my bones. The fear of falling caused my muscles to freeze, and I was as a deer in headlights, unable to comprehend, to react, to even move.
