On the Edge

By
More by this author
Have you ever been
On the edge of
Despair
Nothing is going right
Losing your grip on reality
Feeling your emotions
Sink you lower and
Lower into the darkness of the
Unknown
Never knowing
When you are going to return from the
Edge or
When you will be there again
All you can do is hope and dream
Then you can start
Climbing away from the edge
If you find yourself
Stuck on the edge
Someone will come with their hand
To help you
You choose
To take that hand or
Leave that hand empty
On the Edge
Waiting
