their standards rise, waves descending over my head
in a crash of quiet,
rolling about in my mind as unsettled as
stars after the universe was angry enough to explode into life.
and maybe I feel a little too much,
extending my reach too far, over balancing until;
I fall into the crevice,
never to escape from
this dark world.
damp dreams and shattered mirror fragments that
bite into my heels, reminding me
of how far I have fallen, and how
the ground rises up, quickly
to meet me now.
I was never a good swimmer, and
I was never very afraid.
how can love be feared why should
love be feared?
I never understood.
and maybe it was never a thing of time,
or reason why.
just a thing of wonder, and the shock of life
as you breathe again.
as you breathe, alive.
