A dripping dagger ascends from the gate
An open orifice
Screaming out a birds song
Of fragility and life
And resilience.
Reminding me,
But I’m never sure
Sometimes I feel too invincible
Finding myself atop a cliff’s edge
Gazing at the crashing water below
Wondering what my eyes would see on the way down,
Wondering what my lungs would breathe underneath
Adrenaline, experimenting
With passing cars and massive drops
To wake me up
To make me feel real again
When love is lost on myself,
And the world is gray.
