Out there in the dark
unknowable deep
Luminescence. Dim
And unsteady, but
Tattered torn nothing
Crumbles behind
Jagged rocks reach up
Like death below.
Ground beneath stills
And settles.
I could wait.
The ground bubbles
But does not move again
Perhaps it won’t.
Darkness deepens here,
And I could grin
And bear it.
The ground rips apart
And I am everywhere
Hanging over the precipice
With a vine, a lifeline.
I could pull myself over
And settle on the ruins.
In the corner, beyond the precipice
Light. Dim.
But present.
I release what is
And reach
And reach
And reach
For what could be.
