Precarious

Precarious
Unsteady feet
Numbed my resolve
Clinging on for dear life
No strong arm to brace
No comforting embrace
Just a hard slap in the face
Vicariously living invisible pleasures
That dissolve with the mere thought
Unsteady feet
White toes grip
Safety eludes me
The wire strung across
The chasm of
My dangerously broken heart
Wobbles, taunting like the challenge
To stay on is fun
The endless bottom has fallen out
I'm on my own
I've got to bring it home
Frozen with fear I don't know how
Manic loss slippage
I can't hold on
Where are you when I need you most?
That's right,
kicking the ladder from under my feet
I'm hanging like a half dead bird on a wire
Take aim finish me I want to take flight
Make me fall with all your might
Finish me I'm tired of living precariously.

Take flight! You don't have

Take flight! You don't have to fall, you have wings after all.
*smiles and faerie dust... hope you feel better!
