the precipice

i stand at the cliff of forever
looking over the edge
and the drop before me
into the ether of nothingness

time has rushed thru its portal
leaving me winded
exhaustion weighs heavy
and my muscles grow weak

the brand of all my yesterdays
still burns with the heat
of its impression
rendering its imortal scar
on my soul

i look toward tomorrow
and see the emptiness
of sorrow and regret
looming like a rapter
before its kill

fear boils within me
and i am left wondering
if i have the strength
the resolve
the courage
to face another year

or should i add myself
to the countless others
who have stepped
fallen
or been thrown
off the cliff of forever

  1. Marcus,
    Please hang on.

    There is a photo of me when I was 18. I have always viscerally HATED the kid in it. This morning I stumbled upon it.

    I didn’t cringe. I didn’t hate him anymore. I never imagined I could look at him with affection.

    Please hold on. You can heal. Please give yourself the chance.

    This anniversary will pass.
