The Edge

Again, I am teetering on the edge.

Looking down at the swirling darkness,

Tempted to leap in and let it take me.


It feels like pain is all there is.

Nothing but the tearing loneliness,

When brief connections just make it worse when they’re over.


Questions go unanswered, needs go unmet.

I am lost. Empty and alone.

I want to smother the feelings, blank out the hurt.
