Tiptoe the Precipice

written by: Benjamin R Bray

@MrBray317

 

Crossing lines
In both positive
And negative
Directions

Directions
Drawn as lines
Written as lines
That curve and cross
Forming guides
Forming commands

So you tell yourself
To go one way
Sometimes you follow that line
Walking backwards along your edge

Your limit

Just as you begin to believe
That old lines fade
As new lines are etched
At the edge of the light
Pushing back the darkness

You are shown the truth
In the blindness

The old lines
Never fade
They wait in the falsified light
Made deceptively real
By the encroaching darkness

Writing my way through life's journey; finding inspiration in the people who make me feel like I deserve to be here. In their unconditional love that I find what little strength I feel I have to face this overwhelming world. Through my writing I find escape in expression of anything I'm feeling at the moment the pen makes contact with the paper.
