Precipice

She gives you candy hearts


you mistake them for your soul


With every kiss you come closer


to falling off the precipice


You tell me there is a building


where there is only air


You’ve sold your heart for a strand of her hair


You play with emotions


and everything’s supposed to be okay


You’re blindness to reality


is fatal


Never mind


You push ahead


The abyss is starring down below


You’ll never know


You’re not listening


Never mind


It’s fun

Who cares that the price is your life?

What will fill the hollowness she’s cut inside

when she leaves and all that’s left is void?

She swallows you whole and makes her incision

You can’t hear the questions I ask

You lean precariously on edge

The rocks crumble under you

‘’Be careful!’’ I shout


You wave at me


‘’Life is fine. All is well. Don’t overreact.’’


I turn away


leaving you here


feels like death


but there is nothing


I can do to keep you


from falling


don’t worry


I’ll leave a rope


maybe you’ll grasp it


at the final chance
